Mind Set Game #56: Don’t exist, live with Corie Mapp

In Today’s episode of the Mind Set Game Podcast, I sat down with Corie Mapp.

He lost both legs in 2010 in an ambush in Afghanistan, while serving in The Household Cavalry. Today his only concern is to give something back, to inspire others. With roots in Barbados, Corrie excels at sport – he has played disabled cricket for Hampshire, was part of the Paralympic bobsleigh team – and it’s been a key part of his physical and mental recovery.

When he’s back home in Swindon, he helps at the Royal Legion centre – assisting other veterans.

He is a hero who is fiercely competitive…but a man who judges success not in medals, but rather in being an example to others.

“If we sit at home, pile loads of weight on and feel sorry for ourselves, things go downhill. Sport helps me stay fit and competitive, and keeps me mentally sharp. Sport has been incredibly important for me, and for everyone competing in these Games. I desperately needed something to focus on during rehab. Sport fills a gap in my life that the Army had left.” Continue reading “Mind Set Game #56: Don’t exist, live with Corie Mapp”
