Movie Info

Strong! chronicles an athlete's struggle to defend her champion status as her lifetime weightlifting career inches towards its inevitable end. Cheryl Haworth defies categories. A 12th generation patriotic American, a visual artist, and, since age 14, America's top Olympic weightlifter, she is an elite at the international level. A formidable figure in American weightlifting. Haworth is ranked well above all men and women on Team USA. But at 5 foot 8 inches and weighing over 300 pounds, she doesn't easily fit into standard chairs, clothing sizes, or pre-conceptions. As the 2008 Beijing Olympics approach, Haworth struggles with injuries, the end of her career, and the difficult task of re-defining herself and building a sense of confidence that she can bring with her as she leaves the sport that has given her a sense of pride. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Strong!

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

An engaging subject and a seldom-scrutinized athletic competition make Julie Wyman's documentary a fun watch, even though there's ultimately not a great deal of narrative drive or deeper insight.
