Paralympics 2014: Russia Wins Gold and Silver in Cross-Country Race

Russian paralympic athlete Elena Remizova won a race containing just four athletes to take gold in the women’s 15km cross-country ski event for visually impaired athletes.

      Remizova’s winning time of 49 minutes 10.2 seconds was far ahead of the other three, allowing the Russian, a five-time world champion in cross-country, to claim her first career Paralympic medal.

      The silver medal was also grabbed by Russian athlete, Mikhalina Lysova, who had also become the gold medalist in Saturday’s 6km biathlon, finishing 1 minute 37.3 seconds off the lead.

      Forty-five-year-old Belarusian Yadviha Skorabahataya trailed in third for bronze, five minutes further back.

      The only other woman in the race was Canadian Margarita Gorbounova, a Russian-born professional translator who was more than 15 minutes off the pace and nine minutes off the time set by the next-slowest competitor.

      Earlier in the day, Russia’s Rushan Minnegulov won the men’s 20km standing event and Canada’s Brian McKeever the visually impaired 20km.
