This interesting series gives sports fans a chance to get to learn more about specific athletes from each one's individual point of view. While some are trying to overcome anxieties following major accidents and injuries, others are trying to reclaim their position and reputation after being sanctioned or suspended. Adding to their sports moments are stories about coping with poverty, confronting racism, and other challenges that impact the way they view themselves as competitors. But while each of their stories is different, as are the obstacles they face, they all share the desire to remain at the top of the sport they love. Ultimately, Peaking serves to show the very human side of athletes, and how they negotiate their personal feelings and fears in order to keep competing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
