From the first scene I was gripped. Prepare yourself to discover the real story of 12 young athletes competing for the first time. This is not just about winning; it's also about losing, about their personal lives, family, hardship, self belief and extreme motivation. I felt connected to each and every one of the starring athletes as we follow them from their hometowns and accompany them through the Olympic journey. It is extremely inspiring and motivational, it very much spoke to me. The score was also perfect, it couldn't have been picked any better.
After having experienced such an important summer of sport, all of a sudden I felt like there wasn't so much to look forward to in that respect. This film allowed me to relive fantastic moments of the Olympic games and put me right back in the mood!
It's a feel good, emotion triggering count of 12 very inspiring athletes competing at the 2012 Olympics. I will buy the DVD not only for myself but also for a lot of friends/family who I know would be touched by the film.
I strongly recommend this film. To everyone.
I was moved by the personal stories from the athletes and their families and I liked the fact it's not all about the medal winners, it really does capture the joy, elation and heartbreak as families and athletes work towards their 2012 Olympic dreams.
I loved the fact I could relive 2012 but in a new way!
