The Olympic Games are one of the most powerful symbols for unity in the world. Every two years they bring together athletes from around the world to showcase the peak of human performance. As athletes make their final preparations for the Beijing Winter Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is doing its part to highlight how fans across the world experience their Olympic moments. A short film unveiled this week by self-taught filmmaker Salomon Ligthelm, highlights the “power of solidarity” in sport, and continues the Olympic motto of “Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together”. The two-minute film, titled Every rise, every fall, every victory – we’re in it together, shows people around the world mirroring athletes movements in different sports from bobsleigh to artistic skating to demonstrate the power of human connection. Every rise, every fall, every victory - we’re in it together.

The natural environment is often harsher, the falls can be more frequent – the suspense of it all couldn’t be more compelling,” Nils Leonard, who produced the film alongside Ligthelm, said. “We don’t just tune in to watch athletes win, we want to watch them rise on a global stage. We’re so proud to share this powerful film – capturing the incredible connection between athletes and the fans who are right there with them.” The film is being shown across Olympic channels in the lead up to the Beijing Games, which start on February 4 and run though to February 20.
