Product Description

Filmed over four years, Personal Best follows up-and-coming British sprinters on their journey from the grassroots of athletics to the international stage. The film is both a gripping portrait of the athletes in training and competition, and a deeply personal account of their lives unfolding revealing victory, defeat, agony, ecstasy and the simple trials of growing up. On the eve of the 2012 Olympics, this film tells the stories of Britain s young sprinters as they strive towards their dreams. This is an inspiring but genuine portrait of Britain s youth and a penetrating study of the art of sprinting, peeling back the layers so we can finally understand everything it means to them as they wait on the start line for the gun to fire.

Real nice and inspirational movie, i recommended. If you train this is the movie you must see to have a different view of how hard it means to be an "elitte".

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Sport Documentary 7 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to say that I'm not a documentary expert but I have watched quite a few athletics (sprint) documents that I enjoyed quite a bit. I am a sprinter and I like to watch things about sprinting when I can. I heard about this film and thought that it might be interesting as it might show the intensity and drama which athletes have to go through but I have to say that even I found boring.

I think that the way they approached the film could have been a bit more interesting, maybe less athletes, slightly shorter and even a narrator or something.
