Perhaps a phrase that resonates somewhere deep inside all of use, the two words, “personal best,” are something that is all too familiar within the realm of competitive sports. As the London 2012 Olympics kick off, both athletes that will experience the elation of a win and those others that may fall victim to the despair of a loss retain the shared drive for achieving a personal best. Captured over a four-year period, the aptly titled film Personal Best from Sam Blair taps into the story of up-and-coming British sprinters and their paths to getting a chance at the Olympics. The rare perspective effectively pulls back the layers of depth, dedication and emotion that play into an Olympics hopeful. Personal Best is now available to screen worldwide, via the player on the website here.
