In 1984, an unknown teenager from South Central LA burst on to the global stage by winning an Olympic silver medal in the 400m hurdles. Three years later, Danny Harris became the first person in over a decade to beat the legendary Edwin Moses. Yet his failure to qualify for the 1988 Seoul Olympics led, Harris into a period of depression and addiction. Orphaned at 14, Olympic star at 18, crack cocaine addict at 22, and finished at 30, this is the dramatic story of Danny Harris’s rise, fall and eventual redemption.
The Panel includes a Canadian Olympian, Danny Harris (main character of the film) along with a representative from a Local Track and Field Club.
Anson Henry - Canadian Olympian, CBC Olympic Broadcaster and NCAA Champion is the host the event.
