Our sledge hockey team wins the gold in Sochi by shutting out Russia.

Even though things are wrapping up at the Paralympics in Sochi, there was no lack of drama in day 8. The U.S. and Russia had a much anticipated rematch in the sledge hockey gold medal match. The United States got their revenge beating the tough Russian team 3 – 0. The U.S. team outscored their opponents 13 – 3 over the course of the games. This puts our athletes in third place in the overall medal count behind only Russia and the Ukraine. These amazing, inspirational individuals make me so proud to be not only an American, but also to be successfully disabled in this country.
