"I'm just happy to make my mother smile, and I hope she can live happily for a long time", he said.

For the past two weeks at the Paralympic Games in South Korea, he's been doing just that. "Now it's kind of developed into a sense I use my athletic ability to give back to the community by giving them something to be so proud of on the worldwide stage and the possibilities are endless if you're willing to do the work".

These two medals bring Team Canada up to a medal count of 24, putting them in third place behind the team of Neutral Paralympic Athletes and the United States.

Wilkie finished the race with a final time of 22:12.2 while fellow Canadian Emily Young finished in the bronze medal spot with a time of 22:13.9.

The six-foot-three athlete was presented the flag by teammate Brian McKeever, who carried the flag in the opening ceremonies, and claimed his third gold medal of the Games earlier Saturday.

Canada is guaranteed another medal Sunday when the hockey team battles the rival Americans for gold.

"It's a small thing that made a big impact over the last four years". Arendz shot a ideal 20-for-20, and finished in 42 minutes 52.2 seconds.

"The gold medal day, I woke up and said, "hey, this is kind of east coast weather" - a little bit of rain, a little bit of snow, freezing, a little bit of ice and then warm temperatures right after - so I felt right at home in that kind of weather and that kind of conditions".

"That completes the set for biathlon".

Arendz reached the podium in every one of his races, capturing gold in the 15-kilometre biathlon, silver in the 7.5K biathlon, and three bronze medals in the 12.5K biathlon, 1.5K cross-country sprint, and 10K cross-country race. "The first gold, that means everything to me". He already took bronze over 15 km.
