September 2011. Swimmer Marcelo Collet awaits Coast Guard permission to perform the biggest challenge of his life so far. After two years of preparation, he will try crossing the English Channel, known as the "Everest" of open water swimming. Due to the weather, his chances of getting into the water and facing the twelve hours separating England and France are dwindling. During the days of waiting, we know better the story of Paralympic athlete Marcelo Collet. At age 17 he was hit by a car during a cycling practice shortly after his first call to be part of the Brazilian triathlon squad. With the considerable loss of movement of his left leg, Collet devoted himself to swimming and competed in the Paralympics of Athens and Beijing.
