A OneToWatch production, it was directed by Matthew Pinsent, a four-time Olympic gold medallist and BBC broadcaster. Recently Matthew was behind the BBC’s Olympic Dreams series and in this documentary he has captured all the exhilarating highs and lows as Chad chases his dream to Rio.
Chad le Clos said: “It has been a real privilege to welcome Matthew into our lives and to have him with us on our journey to the Games. As viewers will see, this has been in many ways the toughest time of my and my family’s lives. The public will get a very honest portrayal of my story and the build up to the biggest week of my life in Rio this summer.”
Matthew Pinsent said: “When I started this project, I only knew about a talented athlete and his larger-than-life father. What I have learned about this family, their resilience, the reality of coming from South Africa, and the power of sport, has been very special for me.”
