Official Trailer for 'Picabo' Doc Series on the Famous Olympic Skier

"Picabo put ski racing back on the map." Peacock has released this new docu series titled Picabo on their streaming service this weekend. Just in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics kicking off soon in China. The documentary chronicles the life of 1998 Olympic alpine skiing gold medalist Picabo Street, a name many will recognize as she was very famous in the 90s. It features an emotional interview with Street and fellow skier Lindsey Vonn and tons of archival footage. "Picabo Street is a true sporting pioneer who I’ve looked up to as long as I can remember," said Vonn speaking about the film. I've been lucky to be able to call her not only a mentor but a friend. I wanted to play this forward by documenting her incredible story in Picabo – I hope it will inspire the next generation of barrier-breaking athletes." This is produced by Frank Marshall and it's directed by him and Vonn. It covers her unorthodox childhood in Idaho to her Olympic successes, dramatic recoveries from ill-timed injuries, and her arrest in 2015. Looks like there's plenty this will discuss.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Peacock's documentary series Picabo, direct from YouTube:
