MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minnesota snowboarder has won gold at the Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

We introduced you to Mike Schultz of St. Cloud when he was training.

He made his gold-winning run in Snowboard Cross Tuesday. The course features turns, jumps, steep and flat sections.

Schultz lost part of his left leg in a 2008 accident. He designed his own prosthetic and founded the company BioDapt.

Several paralympians use his prosthetics, even the Bronze medalist who shared the podium with Schultz.
