discovery+ unveils new documentary ‘Reaching the Sky’ ahead of Tokyo Olympics

The documentary featuring skateboarder Sky Brown will be available from 21 July.


Mumbai: Discovery's streaming service platform discovery+ has unveiled an exclusive documentary ‘Reaching the Sky’ featuring skateboarding prodigy Sky Brown. The documentary complements Discovery's existing Tokyo Olympics content and it will be available for streaming on discovery+ from July 21.

Reaching the Sky charts the 12-year-old’s journey from being a child skateboarder to representing Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics. The 45-minute film includes never-before-seen footage of her family time, skateboarding training, and surfing practice sessions, giving viewers a peek into the life and personality of the talented, young athlete.

Currently ranked third in the world, Sky will be Britain’s youngest ever summer Olympian. In the documentary, she speaks candidly about her life, training, the accident, and her ambition of winning the Olympic gold medal for Great Britain in the Women’s Park Discipline scheduled on Wednesday, 4 August. 

Reaching the Sky also features other well-known names from the world of skateboarding and surfing. This includes world number one street skateboarder Nyjah Huston and surfing pro Rob Machado who share their thoughts on Sky’s achievements and potential. 

“I’m excited that people across the world are going to watch Reaching the Sky on discovery+," Sky Brown said. "It was fun to film, and I got to do some really cool stuff like training with Nyjah Huston and Rob Machado. I want to be in the Olympics to inspire girls to get out there. I hope when they see me, a tiny girl just like them, going high, they’ll think they can do it too. I hope to get gold; that’s the dream, but if not, I still got in the Olympics and that’s really cool.”

“Sky Brown is a supremely talented young athlete whose breath-taking skills, fearlessness, and personality make her a true star with an amazing dream," Discovery Sports' head of sports production and content, Scott Young said. "Her story is captivating, and we are excited to have been able to collaborate with Sky on the hugely entertaining documentary which charts her incredible rise to success and includes exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of her challenging road to the Tokyo Olympics 2020.”
