Double Paralympic gold medallist Steve Bate MBE has climbed his way into the history books in more ways than one.
And with a Commonwealth bronze to his name at Birmingham 2022, he's not slowing down soon.
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.
In Birmingham, Bate clinched bronze alongside pilot Chris Latham in the Men's Tandem B 1000m Time Trial.
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.
