COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) of the gold medal-winning 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team was named the International Paralympic Committee's Best Male Athlete of the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, as determined by a public vote.

Farmer tied for the Team USA lead in both goals (3) and points (5). He tallied two goals and an assist in the 3-0 semifinal win against Canada. In his Paralympic debut, the 16-year-old notched a goal and an assist versus Italy.

Team USA became the first nation to win back-to-back Paralympic gold medals in sled hockey by defeating Russia, 1-0, in the gold-medal game.
