GOLD – YOU CAN DO MORE THAN YOU THINK is the emotional story about three outstanding top Athletes. Henry Wanyoike, a blind Marathon runner from Kenya, Kirsten Bruhn, paralyzed Swimmer from Germany and Kurt Fearnley, Australian Wheelchair racer.
For over a year the film team around Michael Hammon followed these three Athletes on their daily routines. They gained a deep inside view into the private and professional lives and understood why they receive so much recognition in their countries and serve as role models within the educated society. They push to the limit every day, they support where there is need and they show us that inside each one of us lies something larger than life, something very valuable.
The movie reaches its peak at the Paralympics in London 2012. The whole city celebrates the Athletes that have gathered from all around the world. People of all nations emphasize and cheer with the Athletes in front of their television sets at home. For 10 days London was in a state of pure excitement and taken up by a storm of the pure love for life which nobody could escape. This spirit made GOLD more than just a movie about exceptional Athletes. This documentary reminds you, that you can achieve much more than you think and that GOLD is in each and everyone of us.
