‘CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT’ – DOCUMENTARY

Another day, another great Sport documentary trailer.

This time, take a look at ‘China Heavyweight’, the new Boxing doc from ‘Up The Yangtze’ director, Yung Chang.

It follows kids from China’s rural peasant towns as they get selected and nurtured toward Olympic greatness by coach Qi Moxiang.

It looks like one hell of a journey, but even in this brief trailer you can see the determination and desire amongst these youngsters to break out from their hometowns and live a life of greater purpose.

After a showing at Sundance in January, the documentary will be released later this year into cinemas.

These guys took a passion and a way of having fun, and turned it into an industry and a competitive art.

I can’t wait for this…

STELLA MCCARTNEY REVEALS TEAM GB OLYMPICS KIT

The kit which will be worn by Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games was revealed today.  Designed by Stella McCartney, the Team GB kit features elements of the union jack flag.  This design, as modelled by Philips Idowu and Jessica Ennis, has already faced criticism due to the lack of red used.  According to a report by Professor Robert Barton and Dr Robert Hill, red is associated with winning.  The more red you wear, the more likely you are to win?
