Mark Colbourne from Tredegar, South Wales made an incredible debut at his first World Championships and clenched silver, finishing 34 seconds behind Germany's Mark Teuber.
"I am really pleased with my race. It was tough and I got held up by two cars but it just fuelled my determination to really push at the end. I am absolutely over the moon to have won silver just two and a half years after breaking my back in a para-gliding accident. I'm dedicating the medal to my daughter."
