One of America’s top Olympic women weightlifters, Cheryl Haworth doesn’t fit the conventions of a typical athlete. At 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing over 300 pounds, the talented, engaging and intelligent Cheryl is a force of nature unto herself. Julie Wyman‘s Creative Capital-supported project, STRONG!, chronicles her battle of maintaining her championship status with a rigorous training schedule, while at the same time facing an uncertain future as she considers the possibility that Olympic level weightlifting may not be a lifelong endeavor.

Screening times:
Wednesday, June 20, 1:45pm, Discovery HD Theater
Sunday, June 24, 6:15pm, AFI Silver Theatre 3
