Catrin Freundlinger | Austria 2018 | 60 Min. | OmeU

In elegant nonchalance, Nicol moves from one bar to the next, traversing the sports hall in back handsprings, nearly ying. Nicol is twelve years old and an artistic gymnast. Tokyo is a portrait of her, focusing on what is also at the center for Nicol: Training six days a week for the next medal at a competition, dreaming of the Olympics, and devo­tion to the exercise.
