Canada's Lonnie Bissonnette secured the defence of his overall International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) Para Sport World Cup title after registering first and second-place finishes at the last stop of the season in Park City.

The 54-year-old won yesterday's event in 1min 49.85sec before finishing runner-up to Sweden's Sebastian Westin-Vippola today.

The results were enough to see the two-time world champion leapfrog Great Britain's Corie Mapp into top spot in the final IBSF Para Sport World Cup standings for 2019-2020.

Bissonnette finished on 2,065 points, while Mapp, ranked 10th and 13th in Park City, ended on 1,926 points.

Mapp, winner of four of the previous eight races, had held a 32-point lead over Bissonnette coming into the season finale.

Latvia's Arturs Klots, the 2018 world champion, came third on 1,869 points after posting two seventh-place finishes in Park City.

Westin-Vippola, who finished 0.04 seconds behind Bissonnette in the first event and won the second by 0.71 seconds in 1:53.76, had to settle for fourth place overall with 1,859 points.

Israel's Dave Nicholls and Spain's Israel Blanco were the bronze medallists in the first and second events, respectively.

For the IBSF Para-athletes, attention now turns to next month's World Championships in Norwegian town Lillehammer.

Competition is due to take place on March 24 and 25.
