Partner: The Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation

DICK'S Sporting Goods employs Olympics hopefuls in their stores and provides them flexible working hours so they can balance training with everyday responsibilities. Tribeca Studios produced five short stylized documentaries with five different filmmakers profiling DSG Olympic contenders as they worked towards their Olympic dreams.

PICTURE YOURSELF *Vimeo Staff Pick
Director: Henry Busby
Charles Clark believes in the power of visualization. He hears the crowds. He tastes the sweat. He feels the energy. He smells the smoke. Most importantly though, he sees himself bringing home a gold medal for Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games. And yet, after suffering a debilitating injury in 2010, this once-decorated athlete's goal seems more distant than ever. To reclaim his dream, he's dedicated his life to power of positive thinking and visualization. As the games near and his odds converge with his aspirations, Charles explores past wounds both on and off the track and realizes that true victory doesn't always come in gold.

BACKBONE
Director: Jonathan VanBallenberghe
When spinal injuries cut short Kaitlyn McElroy's nordic skiing career, she channeled her drive into a new sport, kayaking. On land, she still battles back pain — but on the water, her kayak becomes a brace, supporting her spine and easing her pain while she paddles toward an extraordinary goal: the 2016 Olympics.

SECOND TO NONE
DIRECTOR: Genéa Gaudet
Second to None follows Isabella Isaksen, a 2016 Olympic contender in Modern Pentathlon, as she competes alongside her sibling Margaux, a two-time Olympian. Second to None is a story about competition – what it ultimately means and what happens when we let it define us – as seen through two sisters who compete in one of the more obscure and grueling Olympic events.
