Great Sports movie for any athlete
10 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film incorporates everything people love about sports. Self competition, physical fitness, feeling good about yourself and so on. It looks at the remarkable weight lifting career of Sri Chinmoy who in his 70's was lifting weights that most people would find difficult if not impossible at any age. But that's what the movie is about. Challenging yourself to try things you don't think are possible.

With appearances from 9 time Olympic Gold medallist Carl Lewis, 5 time Mr Universe Bill Pearl and body building legend Frank Zane there is enough stars in the film for body builders and lifters to appreciate and take something extra out of the movie. I really enjoyed this and have watched it about 4 times.
