language

There is strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k'), accompanied by milder terms ('shit', 'hell' and 'freaking'). There is also use of a middle finger gesture.

suicide

There are numerous references to the suicidal thoughts and actions by Olympic athletes who struggled under the pressures of sporting competition. There is audio of a 999 call made by a man who was about to take his own life. More broadly, the documentary sheds light on the lack of structural help put in place for athletes, to help them face the emotional and mental burden that often comes with competing at the highest level in their sport.


There is an undetailed passing reference to child sex abuse.
