Olympic Dreams
Program Description

OLYMPIC DREAMS follows a team of talented but inexperienced young track stars as they pursue a common dream: to represent Sierra Leone in the 2004 Summer Games and give it hope for a better future. Filmed over two and a half years, the program follows Sierra Leone's attempt to build another Olympic-caliber team in time to compete in Athens. Recently recovered 11 years of civil war, the athletes contend with inadequate training facilities, the corruption of their national sports officials and desperate poverty.
