Matthew was born missing his right arm below the elbow but this has never held him back. He started climbing in 2014. He was invited to join the GB Paraclimbing Team in 2016 and has been in the team since. He has won two World Champion titles and many international podiums and would love to see Paraclimbing in the Paralympics. He loves getting outdoors as well as competing and is also a Climbing Instructor and route setter at his local walls.
