OLYMPIC LIVES is not just a sports documentary. It is a documentary of five human stories of perseverance and effort. It tells us of life, the joys and disappointments that make us grow as a person, and also of a group of athletes who surpass themselves every day on their way to the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Each athlete embodies an olympic value wich is present, with an special prominence, in his life:
Ricardo Ten is persistence.
Laura Gomez represents courage.
David Casinos is pure self-improvement.
Alejandra Quereda and Elena Lopez who embody the sacrifice.
Pablo Torrijos, effort.
All of them have similar carreers and lifes: children who stand out for a natural talent in their disciplines and work hard to achieve their dreams. All were born in ordinary families, middle class. All they have it has been achieved by believing in themselves.
