Vanuatu swimmer aims to go from hospital bed to Olympics

Vanuatu swimming officials were appealing to authorities to support Hollingsword Wolul's dream of competing at the re-scheduled Tokyo games as he fought his way back from a life-threatening cancer.

The 20-year-old from Port Vila was struck down with leukaemia on the eve of the national trials last year and airlifted to Australia for urgent treatment, where doctors told him he had only three days to live.
