About this movie

American Weightlifting is the story of a sport in turmoil and the athletes and coaches whose passion drives them to succeed despite the odds. Amateur athletes and coaches with little or no financial support struggle to compete with the professionals who dominate the sport internationally. Training in garages, working full time jobs, ignored by the public and the media, American weightlifters and coaches strive to compete with the best in the world.

I heard mixed reviews about Gregs movie from people who weren't particularly invested in weightlifting as a sport. Mostly Crossfit coaches and weightlifting outliers. After watching it I see why. Without a steady stream of loud rap music I doubt they were to able to comprehend the actual words and material presented. If you want a good understanding of weightlifting the U.S. and how hard people work every day, this movie is for you.
