Champions vs. legends

A film by Heinz Leger

Every year multiple records are surpassed by a newer generation of athletes and, according to the numbers, elite athletic performance is continually improving. However, are today’s competitors actually better athletes than their predecessors, or are there other forces at play? Our 45 minute documentary, Champions vs. Legends is a lively 1 hour investigation led by renowned sports scientist Steve Haake. We challenge an elite line-up of winter athletes to compete against the legends of five winter sports in the gear of the past: Christine Nesbitt – Speed Skating, Max Arndt and Alex Rodiger – Bobsleigh, Manuel Feller – Giant Slalom, Anna Schaffelhuber – sit-skiing, and Shea Weber –  Hockey.
