Jody Cundy plans to ‘retire’ the prosthetic leg that fired him to success in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympic games.
The 38-year-old, from Walpole St Peter, plans on putting the leg on display as a reminder of his journey from a disappointing 2012 Games to his gold medal-winning heroics four years later.
The leg features all five of his Paralympic gold medals on a pirate’s treasure map design, and a question mark, signifying the potential of a sixth gold medal, which he duly won in the C4/C5 one-kilometre time-trial last year.
“There’s no new paint work on it,” Cundy told Press Association Sport.
“I’d like to retire the Rio leg, just because it looks so cool. Stick it in a glass case and have it on show at home somewhere.

Cundy is currently in Los Angeles for the UCI Para cycling Track World Championships, which run until Sunday (5).
