Kiwi skier Adam Hall wins bronze medal at Paralympics

Skier Adam Hall has swept to New Zealand's second medal at the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang.

The 30-year-old from Dunedin won a bronze in his Men's super combined event, which uses times from the slalom and super giant slalom, and at one stage lead the timesheets.

He eventually finished behind Russian skier Aleksei Bugaev, who won gold under a neutral flag, and France's Arthur Bauchet who grabbed silver.

It's Hall's second Paralympics medal after the gold he earned in Vancouver in 2010.

"It has been eight years since Vancouver and I'm still in shock, pretty emotional," Hall said afterwards.

"It was a great comeback after the first run. A couple of mistakes in the Super G but we knew we were in the hunt.

"I just had to go out in the slalom like I know I can and we got the reward. I'll take any colour (medal)."

Pyeongchang marks his fourth appearance at a Paralympics, dating back to Torino 2006.

His efforts in Canda earned him a nomination for sportsman of the year at the Halberg Awards in 2011.

Corey Peters also won bronze for New Zealand on Saturday in the men's downhill sitting event.
