God Made Her for this Sport - The Cheri Becerra Story
February 25, 1997
From 1997, what does it take to become an Olympic medalist? How far will a person go to realize a dream, despite the obstacles? Follow a Nebraska-based wheelchair racer's historic journey to the 1996 Altanta Summer Olympic Games. This program is a compelling account of a young woman's determination to reach her goals of Olympic glory and personal fulfillment. Paralyzed from the waist down since the age of four, Becerra last year became the first Native American woman to compete in the Olympics. The documentary charts Becerra's journey from Nebraska City to Atlantavia Paris, and focuses on the tremendous support she receives from her coach, the Native American community and, most notably, her mother. It's a story that deeply impressed producer Steve Alvis from his earliest involvement with the program.
