In the wheelchair curling final of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Paralympics, the Chinese team narrowly defeated the strong Norwegian team 6:5 after overtime, thus reaching the highest podium. This is the first medal and the first gold medal won by the Chinese delegation in the previous Winter Paralympic Games it has participated in. It has achieved a breakthrough from nothing.

The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics is the second Paralympic trip of the Chinese wheelchair curling team. At the Sochi Winter Olympics, the Chinese wheelchair curling team, which participated for the first time, won fourth place, just one step away from the podium.

A total of 12 teams participated in the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Wheelchair Curling Competition. In the single round robin, the Chinese team ranked third with 9 wins and 2 losses and successfully entered the semi-finals.

The four players sent by the Chinese team in the final are Wang Meng on the first base, Liu Wei on the second base, Chen Jianxin on the third base, and Wang Haitao on the fourth base. Zhang Qiang is the team’s substitute.

The Pyeongchang Paralympic Winter Games is the fifth time that the Chinese delegation has participated in the Paralympic Winter Games. Winter sports for the disabled in China started late. It was not until the 2002 Paralympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City that the Chinese sports delegation participated for the first time. At the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Winter Games, expect Chinese players to continue to create surprises. (Wang Hao)
