Ah Steve-O - the man who stole our hearts by fish-hooking his own cheek and snorting a line of wasabi on Jackass.
Despite being a royal f-up on the MTV show that made him famous, over the past ten years the actor has transformed his life by going sober and vegan. And to celebrate an entire decade off the sauce, he's participated in a triathlon.
According to Runner's World, Steve-O competed in the celebrity division of the 32nd annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon in Los Angeles, California to raise money for childhood cancer research.
Stars raced to finish a half-mile swim, 17-mile bike, and four-mile run along the beach, with other noteworthy participants including Joel McHale, Steve Howey, and Jon Cryer.
Steve-O was so excited, he 'came a day early', and added on Twitter: "I really can't believe how far I've come on this journey of life... I just got tenth place in my division at my first ever triathlon! Woohoo!!! #nauticamalibutri (full disclosure- my division was "men's celebrity", but there were tons of celebrities, so I'm stoked!)"
Congrats to the former Jackass star, who has had some ups and downs over the years to say the least. While he's enjoyed being on the award-winning show and has a legion of fans willing to copy his hi-jinx in a bid to nab his attention, Steve-O has battled mental health issues and fought multiple addictions to cocaine, alcohol, ketamine, PCP and nitrous oxide.
Finally biting the bullet and going sober, the actor has done a full ten years and has come through the other side of it a shining example of how it is possible to transform your life.
And now he's celebrating a decade of sobriety in an emotional social media post and an incredible completion of a triathlon.
Previous to this, Steve-O gave thanks to his two dogs, Walter and Bernie, telling US Weekly: "I just think back to before I had my dogs and my life must have been just so empty. I shouldn't say empty, but I can't believe how much those little sons of bitches have enriched my life.
"It's so good for a guy like me to have a priority that's not myself and have a regimen and discipline and responsibility that's all very healthy."
Well done, mate.
