The mastery of two different styles of skiing are required tonight at the Paralympic Alpine home of Jeongseon. The men’s and women’s combined events each kick off with a single run of the super-G followed by one run of slalom to determine who leaves with the hardware.

Team USA returns to the Paralympics with two combined bronze medalists, Danelle Umstead (visually impaired) and Stephanie Jallen (standing). American skier Andrew Kurka, who already has downhill gold and super-G silver, will be seeking his third medal of the 2018 Games.

In men’s para biathlon, Team USA’s Dan Cnossen will be attempting to win his third medal of the 2018 Paralympics. Cnossen, a former Navy SEAL lieutenant commander, has already won biathlon gold and cross-country silver in PyeongChang. Lt. Cmdr. Cnossen, a double amputee, will race in the sitting event.

Four years ago in Sochi, Russia dominated nearly every discipline in women’s para biathlon, winning 15 of the 27 medals. Russia was banned from attending these Paralympic Games in PyeongChang after officials deemed their recovery from the Russian Olympic doping scandal as insufficient. Look for the second most dominant para biathlon nation from 2014, Ukraine, to be a factor. In the sitting class, U.S. stars Kendall Gretsch and Oksana Masters could both add a third medal to their collections.

Live competition from the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympic Games continues through the early morning on NBCOlympics.com.
