Excellent documentary of the 1984 Olympics ...
10 March 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 2/12/2000 - (Dir-Bud Greenspan): Excellent documentary of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles which focused on both the ups and downs of those who were competing.The very first segment focuses on a last place finisher who can still hold his head high because he still held the world's record to the victories of Mary Lou Retton & Edwin Moses and their stories. Every story seems to include a second person who inspired the athlete.Well done.
