The widespread mental health issues among Olympic athletes are examined in this documentary.
The Weight of Gold is an HBO Sports documentary exploring the mental health challenges that Olympic athletes often face.
The film comes during a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has postponed the 2020 Tokyo Games – the first such postponement in Olympic history – and greatly exacerbated mental health issues.
The film seeks to inspire discussion about mental health issues, encourage people to seek help, and highlight the need for readily available support.
It features accounts from Olympic athletes who share their own struggles with mental health issues, including Michael Phelps, Apolo Ohno, Shaun White, Lolo Jones, Gracie Gold, Katie Uhlaender, Bode Miller, David Boudia, Jeremy Bloom, Sasha Cohen, and, posthumously, Steven Holcomb and Jeret “Speedy” Peterson (via his mother, Linda Peterson).
