Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. In addition to these individual events, Olympic swimmers also participate in relays. Swimmers can also compete in open-water events (i.e. swimming in the Ocean).
Touch the Wall (2014)
Touch the Wall follows two Olympic swimmers – the then 14 year-old Missy Franklin, and 2-time Olympian Kara Lynn Joyce – as they prepare for swimming’s highest stage – the 2012 London Olympics. Young phenom (Missy Franklin) is just beginning her career and is saddled with mile-high expectations; the veteran (Kara Lynn Joyce) is trying to rediscover the juice that earned her four Silver medals. Touch the Wall is a story of competition, commitment, and triumph through adversity. It’s also a story of family, of loving what you do, and having fun with the people around you. In a world starved for heroes, Missy and Kara stand tall in Touch the Wall.
