Overview

Olympians may be incredible athletes, but they are still just people. The Weight of Gold sheds light on the mental health difficulties that Olympians struggle with after the end of their careers.

From their earliest sporting memories and greatest achievements, to mental health challenges and anxieties post-career, this documentary shows us the vulnerable side of former Olympic powerhouses. A roster of decorated Olympic athletes share their experiences here, from snowboarder Shaun White, hurdler and bobsledder Lolo Jones, figure skater Gracie Gold, to Michael Phelps himself.
