Strong (Episode #1327H)

KQED 9: Wed, Mar 18, 2015 -- 11:00 PM

Scheduled the day before the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics, "Strong!" follows Cheryl Hayworth, a world champion 300-pound U.S. Olympic weightlifter, as she prepares for Beijing in 2008. This is her last shot at the Olympics because her weightlifting career is nearing its inevitable end. A Women & Girls Lead film, "Strong!" is not only a window into the seldom seen world of women's competitive weightlifting, but also explores popular notions of power, strength, beauty and health in a sport where being big means being strong, and is necessary for success.
