Kiwi para skier Adam Hall has won New Zealand's second medal at the PyeongChang Paralympic Winter Games, taking bronze in the men's super combined.

The 39-year-old was seventh-fastest in the 32-strong Super G, where the top-ranked Markus Salcher, Robin Cuche and Theo Gmur did not finish.

In the slalom standing, Hall set a quick combined time of 2min15.32sec, to take the fastest overall time before being usurped by eventual gold medallist Aleksei Bugaev and Arthur Bauchet.

Hall's bronze follows countryman Corey Peters' bronze on Saturday in the Men's Downhill Sitting event.

"It has been eight years since Vancouver and I'm still in shock, pretty emotional," Hall said afterwards.

"It was a great comeback after the first run. A couple of mistakes in the Super G but we knew we were in the hunt.

"I just had to go out in the slalom like I know I can and we got the reward. I'll take any colour [medal]."
