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. Taking its title 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, Unbelievable! 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. This year, aged just 22, Chad won 2 gold medals in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
