The seventh in a series of Olympic films specially produced for the Showtime cable network by the multifaceted Bud Greenspan, this two-hour special focuses upon the 2002 Winter Games at Salt Lake City, UT. As is his custom, Greenspan puts a human face upon the competition by offering in-depth profiles of such participants as Croatian alpine skier Janica Kostelic and Italian cross-country skier Stefania Belmondo. Not surprisingly, the most inspiring segments of the documentary are invested in the gold-medal win by American skeleton sledder Jim Shea Jr.
