The most under reported sporting related event of the past 50 years
10 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I consider myself a student of the history of sport. And this is the most under reported event in the history of sports.

Specifically RISE is the story of the lives of the members of the 1961 US Figuring Skating team who perished in an airplane crash on the way to the World Championships. But it is much more than that. It is the story of how these people through the work of their lives and the impact they had on those to follow changed US Figure Skating forever.

The documentary is narrated by many world champion skaters. Skaters whose live have been directly affected by the legacy of the skaters and coaches of the 1961 US National Team.

You don't need to be a skating fan to enjoyed this documentary. You just need to like a good story. And this is a story that needed to be told.
