Almost two weeks after Great Britain's Olympic team arrived home from Canada, the Paralympic team will have their go at winning some medals.

There are 12 members of the British team team taking part in wheelchair curling and alpine skiing.

Four years ago in Turin, Team GB's mixed wheelchair curling team won a silver medal and this year they aim to go one better.

It's the 10th Winter Paralympics and they start on Friday.
