Sverdlovsk Paralympic competitors won three gold, three silver and four bronze medals. Let's remind that this time as never before many representatives of the Middle Urals - five people took part in the Paralympic Games. They are biathlonist Alena Gorbunova (Ekaterinburg), Anna Burmistrova (Krasnoturyinsk - Ekaterinburg) and Alfis Makamedinov (Nevyansk district) who performed both in skiing race and in biathlon, skier Mikhalina Lysova (Nizhniy Tagil) and downhill skier Alexander Fedoruk (Revda).

The first medal was won by Anna Burmistrova (category «standing sportsmen with affection of support-motor apparatus»), who had left competitors far behind in biathlon race (Maya Loytinoiya from Finland lagged one minute and 35 seconds behind the champion).

In the same discipline Alena Gorbunova who had won silver in Turin Paralympic Games became the bronze prize-winner.

In the category «optically challenged», debutant of the Games Mikhalina Lysova won bronze medal in sprint in the first day of competitions, and as a result she was awarded a badge and certificate of honored master of sports.
