The trailer for "The Mind of Mark Schultz" has been officially released. It is a movie about the life of Olympic gold medalist Mark Schultz.
Throughout his career in wrestling, Schultz was a three-time NCAA champion, as well as three-time world and Olympic champion. His brother, Dave, was murdered by eccentric millionaire John du Pont, and their life story was made into the Oscar-nominated film, Foxcatcher.
This new documentary chronicles Schultz's return to wrestling in upstate New York with teaching a clinic, as well as watching a screening of the feature film Foxcatcher; moreover, it shows him partaking in some outdoor activities such as shooting target practice.
It shows him being greeted at Colonie High School's Gymnasium with a warm, standing ovation. "It was just great to feel the love. I was almost crying," Schultz said in the trailer, and noted that he would love to be more involved in the sport. "It was almost like I never left," he added.
Schultz subsequently defined it as "the greatest character-building sport there is," and rightfully so. He underscored the importance of wrestling in the film and in his best-selling book, the latter of which was dubbed as the best sports autobiography in 2014 by Digital Journal.
The trailer of this new documentary may been seen on Flo Wresting's website.
