The Price of Gold...What it's like to train at an elite level

Just what does it take to win an Olympic Gold medal? This one hour documentary looks at elite Swedish athletes and what they had to do to get a top podium finish...the training, the sacrifices, the pain and the injuries. One consistent theme is that too many people were over training, especially those at a young age. Anyone with an interest in athletics should find this of interest. Recommended.
