Olympic Learning: Tin Soldiers
Tin Soldiers is a fascinating film perspective into the world of amputees, people who have spina bifida, paralysis, and cerebral palsy all participating in adaptive sports. This documentary features double amputee Zach Ruhl; a professional cross-fit coach and soon to be Paralympic power-lifter, WCMX rider Quinn Waitley, 3 year old adaptive athlete Abel Rose, 3 time Paralympic Gold medalist Alana Nichols; the first American female to win gold at both a summer and winter Games, and many more. This film can inspire people to make a change in their life through the power of commitment and sport. To feel better physically and mentally is a key to feeling better emotionally, which begins to resolve the hardest challenge people with these conditions face: overcoming depression. This film is about believing in yourself through adapting.
