Nichols already owns downhill silver, while Stephens won bronze medals in the downhill and super-G. Jallen won bronze medals in the super-G and super combined, while Jones took downhill bronze.

Also Sunday, Tatyana McFadden skis in the 5km sitting cross-country race. The 10-time Summer Paralympic medalist won her first Winter Paralympic medal in the 1km sprint, a silver, earlier at the Games.
