The life of orphan and refugee Chekole Getenet changed forever when he arrived in Brisbane as a 10-year-old and was introduced to athletics. Chekole is a former cow-herder from Ethiopia, but is now a proud Australian. He's hoping the inspiration of seeing world class athletes in his own backyard will inspire him in his dream of representing his new country. The teenager has an inspiring story worthy of a Hollywood movie, overcoming adversity thanks to a rare talent and a devoted teacher.
