Top Spin

The lives of several competitive table tennis players are examined as they head to the Olympics in this sports documentary. Highlighted by dynamic slo-mo footage of table tennis players in action, the intense pressure and grueling workout regimens of these athletes is examined in a day-by-day format until the Olympic Trials. Balancing school and practice, the dedication & sacrifice the athletes endure is remarkable. Illuminating differences in styles of play, techniques in offense and defense, and varying spins on the ball help to clarify misconceptions on a sport that is somewhat obscure in the US, and often just seen as a pastime.
