Olympic gold medalist Mark Schultz stars in ESPN Films' "The Prince of Pennsylvania" documentary, and it is a compelling account.
Mark Schultz reveals the truth behind the wrestling industry, and how it was far from the glitz and glamour that most people believe it is, and how it differs drastically from other countries in the world. It explores the trials and tribulations that an amateur wrestler had to go through in the 80s, to achieve an Olympic dream, as well as the madness of eccentric millionaire John du Pont.
Unlike the feature film Foxcatcher, The Prince of Pennsylvania has a lot more factual information about the lives of Mark and Dave Schultz.
