Run for the Dream: The Gail Devers Story (1996)
In 1988, Gail Devers was one of the best female sprinters in America, and seemed assured of a place on the United States Olympic Team to compete in the 100-meter hurdles in that year's games in Seoul, South Korea. However, tragedy struck Devers in the form of Grave's Disease, a rare ailment that causes swelling and bleeding in the feet. Devers' illness not only prevented her from competing in the Seoul Olympics, it also continued to spread and nearly forced her to have her feet amputated, until a new form of therapy led her to a miraculous recovery -- and a spot on the U.S. Olympic team for the 1992 games in Atlanta. Run for the Dream: The Gail Devers Story is a made-for-TV drama based on Devers' remarkable true story; Charlayne Woodard stars as Gail Devers, with Louis Gossett Jr. co-starring as her coach, Bob Kersee. … More
