PERFECT RUN – #1 – featuring David Graf
Every person driven by passion and operating at the limit has some sort of trigger. Especially with athletes in extreme sports this often is the power behind that drives them. From the outside it can be hard to appreciate the risk behind their success and why these men and women do things close to the impossible. They are meticulous about every small detail that could make the difference and put everything on the line to become the best of the world. To them failure and injuries are just a means to come back stronger afterwards.
Perfect Run» tells the story behind the athletes and gives us a unique view into their psyche. The focus is not the coolest moment at their point of triumph but the before and after, the sweat and tears, the trial and error and most importantly the devotion to the final goal.
