At the 2012 Olympics Chad Le Clos, a twenty-year-old from Durban, astounded the world by achieving the 'unbelievable': he beat Michael Phelps, his childhood hero and the world's number one swimmer, in the 200 metres butterfly final.
This book tells all about the making of a swimming sensation – in the words of the golden boy himself, his family and those who have stood by him from the start. It is an encouraging account of realising the ultimate goal, not through chance, but with the resolute support of family and friends and Chad's own relentless dedication to his sport.
Taking its titles from his dad, Bert le Clos', famous exclamation on BBC TV, when his son defeated Phelps, this book follows Chad's rise to Olympic stardom. An inspirational story for all wishing to achieve beyond what may seem possible.
