Synopsis

Rio 2016 was the first time athletes from the newly emergent nation of Kosovo were allowed to compete in the Olympic Games. This film captures the behind the scenes struggles, hard graft and grit of the humble Kosovo Olympic Team as they prepare to make history on the world stage. Go Go Kosovo! is about triumphing over adversity and never giving up, no matter what. It’s the ultimate underdog story about hope and fighting for what you believe in.
