Rossland’s other Paralympic hopeful fell short of the medals in Sochi on Friday.

Ian Lockey finished 21st in the men’s para-snowboard cross at the Paralympic Winter Games.

Heading into the Games Lockey was not too concerned about the competition he would face since he has been competing with the best in the world for a few years.

“I’m not super nervous as I've done the prep work,” he said. “No need to worry. If I can't do it now, it's a bit late to learn it.”

The medals were swept by three Americans, Evan Strong, Michael Shea and Keith Gabel.
