“The pressure was INSANE. EVERYONE was expecting me to win … I was training so hard for this moment, giving everything I had. I couldn’t just throw that away.” – Janja Garnbret, Tokyo, 2021

The much-anticipated Olympic climbing documentary The Wall – Climb for Gold is out NOW. Prepare to shed a tear, punch the air, and then immediately reach for your chalk bag.

What does it take to be an Olympic athlete at the very pinnacle of your sport?

Determination?
Fixation?
Insanity?

The Wall – Climb for Gold follows Janja Garnbret, Shauna Coxsey, Miho Nonaka, and Brooke Raboutou through two grueling years as they prepare for the Tokyo 2020 Games.

It reveals never-seen-before moments in the lives of these extraordinary athletes as they shed SKIN, SWEAT and TEARS to make it on to the world’s biggest sporting stage. Each athlete has their story away from The Wall which offers a fascinating glimpse in to the world of the pro-climber.

Battling career ending injuries, feeling the crushing weight of expectation, dealing with the pressure of performing to a home crowd, and carrying on a family legacy, they each have their story. They are super-human, yet ultimately still super human.
