Corie Mapp: Briton lands overall World Cup title in Para-Bobsleigh

Great Britain's Corie Mapp has claimed the overall World Cup title in this season's Para-Bobsleigh.

Mapp needed to finish at least sixth in La Plagne, France in the last of this season's eight races to win the title.

He did so comfortably, taking bronze to clinch the overall title for a second time, having won it in 2018.

"I hadn't won it for six years so I was really keen to do that this season," said the former lance corporal in the British Army.

Mapp, 45, added: "It was massive on my to-do list and it's an incredible feeling to have that crystal globe in my hands again."

He had won silver in the penultimate race of the season on Saturday, part of a double-header in La Plagne, to put himself in a promising position.

In the final race, Mapp clocked a combined time of two minutes 13.70 seconds as he finished 0.26 seconds behind joint winners Christopher Stewart, of Switzerland, and Latvia's Arturs Klots.
