The story:

Marc Woods had his left leg amputated due to cancer at the age of seventeen. He had been a county swimmer before the diagnosis and the day after his stitches were taken out, he went swimming again. Within a year, he was swimming faster than what he had swam with his two legs.

His dream was to simply be the best that he could be and just eighteen months after he finished chemotherapy, he was selected to represent Great Britain. He subsequently competed at European & World Championships and Paralympic Games.
