French skater Arthur Bouchet, 21, won his third gold medal at the Beijing Paralympics on Sunday, in the slalom (standing category), confirming the hopes pinned on him for several years.
On the slopes of Yanqing, in the mountainous outskirts of Beijing, the licensed athlete of the Brianson Ski Club beat Chinese Liang Jingyi and New Zealander Adam Hall. This is Arthur Bouchet’s fourth medal in these games. The jovial athlete had already won two titles (downhill and super combined) as well as a silver in the giant slalom.
French snowboarders Benjamin Davitt and Anthony Chalenson won the silver on Sunday in the cross-country ski relay at the Beijing Paralympics (4-13 March), giving the French team another medal. On the slopes of the northern Zhangjiakou site, the Ukrainian team passed the two men, nicknamed Pyeongchang in 2018. This is the fourth medal in Beijing for Benjamin Davitt. 32-year-old Ott Savoyard won gold in cross-country skiing (sprinting) and biathlon (individuals), as well as a silver in backstroke middle distance. Anthony Challinson, born in Evian, won his first medal in these games with the 4 x 2.5 km open relay.
France finished these Paralympics with 12 medals (including 7 gold) and fourth place overall after China, Ukraine and Canada.
