Brian McKeever became Canada's most decorated Winter Paralympian with his record 14th medal on Monday in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The 38-year-old of Canmore, Alta., raced to his third straight Paralympic title in the men's cross-country 20-kilometre visually impaired freestyle event in a time of 46 minutes 02.4 seconds alongside his guide Graham Nishikawa. It was also McKeever's 11th Paralympic gold medal.

Earlier this week, McKeever led the Canadian contingent as the flag-bearer for the opening ceremony in his fifth Games.

He'll look to improve on his medal total on Wednesday in the 1.5K sprint.
