Storyline

Ultra-independent - a one person production start to finish - this movie looks at the passion and dedication of American athletes and coaches in the Olympic sport of weightlifting. The sport is extremely popular internationally, but obscure and struggling in the US, where athletes and coaches must train as amateurs with virtually no support, yet compete professional international counterparts. It's not just the story of a sport, but of the human spirit and the struggles and incredible dedication and hope of a small community of people despite the odds against them. Written by Anonymous

History and current situation of the sport of Weightlifting in USA
3 December 2013 | by marianwrghtSee all my reviews

I loved this doco. My introduction to weightlifting came through my involvement in CrossFit (only 2 yrs ago) but I wish I had been exposed to it much earlier and appreciated the skill/strength/speed etc exhibited by these incredible athletes (I am unfortunately one of those "older athletes with injuries"!!!!) I found it fascinating that weightlifting is so under-exposed in the US and I really hope that people with no knowledge of the sport find this film as well as those already involved in it so the sport and the athletes get the recognition and support they need and deserve.

I think this film should inspire those already in the sport to do more to get it out in the public arena, and for those for whom this film is an introduction to the sport, will make them eager to go pick up a bar bell!!! Great work Greg and your team!!!!
