Former British army lance corporal Martin Tye is paralyzed from his lower knee towards the downward direction. But his disability has no way stopped him from setting world records. He is high on motivation and setting and achieving fitness goals.

He recently completed a historic 505 kg (1113 pound) deadlift. This earned him an entry into new Guinness World Record.
