Get fired up! PBS is back with another in its critically acclaimed and award-winning documentaries, this one called Ice Warriors. It premiers at 10:00 on Monday night, so set your TiVo if you go to bed early like me. Otherwise, grab your popcorn and a cup of coffee and check it out. The doc figures to be yet another of an awesome installment of the PBS documentary lineup.
For sports fanatics AND for folks who don’t know a stick from a puck – ICE WARRIORS, a new action-packed, one-hour primetime PBS documentary, reveals a behind-the-scenes look to the 2014 U.S. Paralympics Sled Hockey Team and their inspiring journey to Sochi. This year’s team features a diverse roster of players with compelling stories. Four members of the Team USA are “wounded warriors”—military veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars—who had life-changing injuries and are now world-class athletes competing at the highest levels of adaptive sports. ICE WARRIORS highlights the athletes’ personal journeys, emphasizing the role of sport in rehabilitation and examining the technologies that have enabled them to proudly represent the US again, this time on the playing field. ICE WARRIORS premieres on Monday, February 24th at 10pm ET on PBS (check local listings). pbs.org/icewarriors
