Schonfelder finishes career with third gold


German great Gerd Schonfelder closed out his Paralympic career on a high on Saturday (AEDT), winning the men's standing super-G title for his third gold medal of the Games to go with one silver.

Through six Paralympic appearances, the downhill specialist has won 21 medals, including a record 15 gold medals.

With his wife due to give birth to the couple's second child any day, the 39-year-old electronic technician said he was looking forward to going home, adding he had no regrets about his final Paralympic appearance.

"I'm happy. Every race I win I'm happy. This last week has been a lot of mental pressure and it has been tough, but I have three gold medals and one silver, so I'm very happy," he said.
