Meanwhile, 17-year-old Arthur Bauchet claimed four silvers in the downhill, Super-G and Super-Combined events in his first-ever Paralympic Games.

Cross-country skier and biathlete Benjamin Daviet won two individual golds and two silvers, as well as team gold with blind endurance skiers Thomas Clarion and Anthony Chalençon.
