At the 2017 World Championships, three Ukranian athletes swept the podium in the women's 15km (standing) event. The silver medalist, Yuliia Batenkova-Bauman, is looking for her first Paralympic gold medal in PyeongChang. In her three previous Paralympic appearances, Batenkova-Bauman has collected seven silver and three bronze medals in cross-country. She has also won three medals in biathlon--also all silver and bronze.

The 2014 gold medalist in this event, Sweden's Helene Ripa, did not return to the Paralympics to defend her title.

Austria's Carina Edlinger, making her Paralympic debut at 19 years old, is the gold medal favorite in the women's 15km (visually impaired). Along with her guide and older brother, Julian Josef Edlinger, Carina won three medals at the 2017 World Championships: gold in this event, gold in the 1.5km sprint freestyle and bronze in the 5km freestyle. 

Canada's Brian McKeever won three gold medals in Sochi, including in the men's 20km, the longest of the Paralympic cross-country events. 38-year-old McKeever has a long and decorated Paralympic history in this event: he also won 20km in 2010, and silvers in 2006 and 2002. Not to mention, he's a seven-time world champion in the 20km. McKeever carried Canada's flag into the PyeongChang Opening Ceremony.

On the women's side, the U.S. has two top contenders in Amy Purdy and Brenna Huckaby: Purdy won snowboard cross bronze at the 2014 Paralympics, and Huckaby is the reigning world champion in this event.

20-year-old Declan Farmer, a student at Princeton, is the U.S. sled hockey's team top scorer. Their goalie, Steve Cash, is making his fourth Paralympic appearance.

The U.S. are the two-time defending Paralympic champions, and at the least two Paralympics outscored their opponents 32-2. But their winning streak came to an end at the 2017 Para Ice Hockey Championships, where Canada beat the U.S. 4-1 in the gold-medal final. The U.S. won't face Canada in the preliminary round of play, as the U.S. is in Group B and Canada is in Group A.
