Double Paralympic gold medallist Steve Bate MBE has climbed his way into the history books in more ways than one.
Bate became the first visually-impaired person to solo scale El Capitan rock in Yosemite, California in 2013, completing a long-time ambition.
He joined the British team that same year and went on to win four Paralympic medals.
The New Zealand-born cyclist is a champion in the velodrome and on the road, winning gold medals in both at Rio 2016. He owns four road world titles and two on the track.
