PyeongChang 2018: Day 6 preview15.03.2018
Decisive matches across both team sports headline the action
The indoor sports will take centre stage on day six of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games with a training day for all snow sports. In Para ice hockey the semi-finals will be contested to decide the two teams who will fight it out for gold, while in wheelchair curling the last round of preliminary matches will reveal the semi-final line up.
Hosts South Korea will take on world championships Canada, while defending Paralympic gold medallists will face Italy in the competition's semi-finals at the Gangneung Hockey Centre. The losers will play for the bronze medal on 17 March, and the winners will battle for gold on 18 March.
In the same cluster as Para ice hockey, but over at the Gangneung Curling Centre are the last round-robin games in the sport before the semi-finals. Four games will take place in each of the three sessions throughout the day. Reigning world champions Norway will take on the USA in the morning and Slovakia in the afternoon.
A rematch of the 2017 World Championships bronze medal game can be found in the evening session between winners Great Britain and China.
Every competition as well as the Closing Ceremony can be watched live right here on the International Paralympic Committee’s website. Highlights of each day’s action will also be made available.
