For thousands of athletes worldwide it was meant to be the last hurdle before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. A year to achieve peak performance, focus minds and chase dreams. Then the pandemic hit, the world stood still and sports with it.

Athletes who had trained a lifetime to perform on the world stage were locked down. For them it would be a year like no other: One Extraordinary Year.

The feature-length documentary chimes with today's zeitgeist, recounting the personal stories of athletes, who like us all, have overcome difficult times, grown personally and professionally to stay at the top of their game and pushed themselves forward towards an uncertain future.

Argentine sailing crew and reigning gold medallists Santi Lange and Ceci Carranza struggle to find harmony, as, marooned in Europe far from family, Santi's obsession with winning at all costs is at odds with Ceci's desire to become a mother "and be more human".

Available to stream from 19 July on Red Bull TV
