The pressure cooker world of competitive sports provides the setting for this exciting teenage drama series. At the fictitious Sports West Academy, the gruelling routine of the career athlete provides a dynamic backdrop to the everyday loves and lives of our would-be Olympians. The series revolves around eight talented young characters - runners, cyclists, swimmers and gymnasts - their successes and failures both as top athletes and all-too-human individuals. And of course there are their coaches, families, rivals, lovers and friends - and their quest for gold.
An excellent series which I have only just been able to see in full for the first time. Shockingly the series was butchered when it was shown on UK TV years ago and every single reference to one of the characters being gay was edited out, making some of the broadcast episodes nonsensical and pointless.
