Description
Sara Newens and Mina T. Son’s TOP SPIN shines a spotlight on one of the most under-appreciated and competitive sports in the country, ping pong. Following Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang, and Michael Landers as they compete to qualify for the Olympics, the film captures the drive and discipline required to be a top-notch athlete. Balancing schoolwork and being a teenager with a rigorous training schedule, puts a strain on friendships and requires them to make sacrifices. Can they make it to the Olympics and be the first Americans to win a medal?
