It is New Zealand's second medal following Corey Peters' bronze on Saturday in the Men's Downhill Sitting event.

It is New Zealand's 30th winter Paralympic medal and New Zealand's 220th Paralympic medal overall, summer and winter.

Hall was seventh after the Super G run, but then later recorded one of the fastest slalom runs.

Hall said: "It has been 8 years since Vancouver and I'm still in shock, pretty emotional. 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]! To come from 7th, into first for a little bit and then hang on and jump into third is remarkable. It sets me up well going into the Slalom on Saturday. We'll take this with both hands for sure."

Hall won the slalom gold medal at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver.

Hall's Spina bifida means he races in sport class LW1, for athletes with significant leg muscle weakness.

Corey Peters competes in the Giant Slalom Sitting today.
