Adam Hall has led New Zealand into the Winter Paralympics closing ceremony, the star performer in a team which exceeded expectations.

Accomplished alpine skier Hall carried the flag into PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on Sunday, having claimed two of his country's three medals at the Games.

That included his gold in the slalom standing event just over 24 hours earlier.

The four-time Paralympian and Dunedin dairy farmer, who has spina bifida, led the Kiwi team of athletes and support staff as the curtain came down on the 10-day Games.


It was a big night for the 30-year-old, who was also presented with the Whang Yuon Dai Achievement Award.

He is the first Kiwi to be bestowed with the award, which has been presented to one male and one female athlete at each summer and winter Paralympics since 1988.

Recipients are those who best exemplify the spirit and values of the Paralympics.

The three-man New Zealand team finished 16th-equal on the medal table, matching their place at Sochi four years ago.

The United States were comfortably on top.

Hall's gold at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre was a Kiwi highlight, storming from third-equal to first with his second run at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre.

It came nearly a year to the day since he won the same event at the 2010 Paralympics in Vancouver.

Hall's bronze medal came in the super combined standing event while alpine skier Corey Peters snared a downhill sitting bronze.
