From the creators of Drive to Survive, Netflix’s latest exciting sports docuseries Sprint will follow the world’s fastest athletes as they compete in the 2023 World Championships and prepare for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

Sprint is an upcoming sports docuseries from Box to Box Films, the creators of popular docuseries such as F1: Drive to Survive, Full Swing, Break Point, Six: Full Contact, and Tour de France; Unchained. Paul Martin, James Gay-Rees, and Warren Smith are the series’ executive producers.

Lord Sebastian Coe, the World Athletics President, had the following to say about the series;

“We’re delighted that Netflix has chosen to turn a spotlight onto the lives of the fastest people on Earth. It takes a special talent, both physically and mentally, to succeed in a world where your fate is decided in just ten seconds. As Muhammad Ali said: “The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.” The same applies to our athletes and we can think of no better partner than Netflix to give our fans new insight into the fascinating high-intensity world of sprinters as they prepare to take their shot at glory at the World Championships.”
