GOLD – Du kannst mehr als du denkst GOLD

 – U can do more than U think 

Germany 2013 / Documentary

Director: Michael Hammon

 DIE SPORTLER – the athletes

Kirsten Bruhn, Schwimmerin/ swimmer
Kurt Fearnley, Rennrollstuhlfahrer/ wheelchair racer
Henry Wanyoike, Marathonläufer/ marathon runner

It’s an extraordinary documentary film: ‘GOLD – U CAN DO MORE THAN U THINK’ tells the life stories of three Paralympic athletes, each one an extraordinary human being.

The film-makers are accompanying the inspirational athletes on the road to London and during the Games. In the spotlight are Kirsten Bruhn, a world-class swimmer from Germany, the Australian Kurt Fearnley, a world-champion wheelchair racer, and Henry Wanyoike from Kenya, one of the world’s fastest blind marathon runners.

What makes the film so remarkable is the passion, strength and zest for life that drives these three athletes. Their stories turn GOLD into a stirring message addressing every man, woman and child with or without a disability: live your dream, overcome barriers, dare to do things that seem impossible – U CAN DO MORE THAN U THINK!
