CORIE MAPP won back-to-back races in the latest leg of the World Cup series in Oberhof, Germany, on Friday and Saturday.

The second race of the weekend also doubled as the European Championship.

Earlier, Mapp enjoyed a stunning start to the new Para Bobsleigh season as he claimed silver and gold in the opening weekend of action.

Mapp, who trains at CrossFit gym in Cirencester, lost both legs when his military vehicle ran over an explosive device in Afghanistan in 2010. Among other injuries, he suffered a broken jaw, severed lip and punctured lung but three years later he was representing Great Britain at the European Championships for sitting volleyball.

Mapp told BBC Sport: "This week was a fantastic week. It was the culmination of an amazing year of sliding and a great start to the season so far," said Mapp, who won overall bronze in the 2019 World Cup and has also represented Great Britain at sitting volleyball and at the Invictus Games.

"It's always amazing to have your anthem played in your honour. Now it's home for a break to reflect and recharge to come back for successful second half of the season."

The World Cup season resumes with two more races in St Moritz, Switzerland, on 24-25 January, and concludes with double-headers in Lake Placid and Park City in the United States in February.

Racing then returns to Lillehammer in March for the World Championships, when Mapp will be hoping to go one better than the silver medal he won in Lake Placid earlier this year.
