Corie was injured in 2010 by an IED blast in Afghanistan, where he lost both legs below the knee. He was discharged from the Army in 2013. Discovering the power of sport in recovery, Corie has competed at the 2014 and 2016 Invictus Games and the Warrior Games. He is now a GB athlete in para bobsleigh and sitting volleyball. Corie will be competing in sitting volleyball and athletics (100 metres, 200 metres and 4x100 metres relay) at Toronto 2017. Having another opportunity to represent his country once more he says is a huge boost for his recovery: “I hope I can inspire people from all walks of life, whether military or otherwise, and continue to serve my country in the best way possible by being a good sportsman and a role model for others to follow.”
