Ben Moore won Britain's first Para-Snowboard World Championship medal with bronze in Tuesday's snowboard-cross event in La Molina, Spain.
The 28-year-old from Plymouth went into the event as the World Cup leader in the upper limb impairment category but lost out to Italy's Manuel Pozzerle in the head-to-head semi-final.
But he recovered to beat American Fatu Matagi and secure a medal.
"Fell in the semi-final but managed to win the small final," Moore tweeted.
"Thanks for the fun and making an amazing course."
Moore and team-mate Owen Pick, who finished out of the medals in the below-the-knee category, will both be back in action again in Saturday's banked slalom competition.
