Winter Paralympics in Turin, Italy, the largest delegation of any
nation.Chris Devlin-Young, a 15-year veteran of the U.S. Disabled
Ski Team and four-time Paralympic medalist in alpine skiing, served
as the flag bearer at the opening ceremonies. Sledge hockey player
Lonnie Hannah, a member of the gold-medal-winning U.S. team at the
2002 Winter Paralympics in Salt Lake City and the
bronze-medal-winning team in Turin, was the flag bearer at the
closing ceremonies.The U.S. finished fifth in the gold and seventh

count was down from the 2002 Winter Paralympics because the number
of disability classes in both alpine and nordic skiing were
significantly reduced, there were many standout U.S. performances.
