The Fast and The Furious – Swimming Documentary


During the 1980s, Canadian swim titans Alex Baumann and Victor Davis ruled the pool.

Baumann was a quiet, analytical IM and freestyle specialist who would win two gold medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, while Davis, a fiery and brash world-record-breaking breaststroker, had his life tragically cut short when he was hit by a car a year after winning gold in the 200-meter breaststroke in Los Angeles.

The Fast and The Furious is a swimming documentary made by the Canadian Broadcasting Company that follows the training and achievements of the two Canadian swimmers as they navigate injuries, conflicts with their coaches, and international competition.

A must-watch swimming documentary for swim fans, swimmers, coaches, and parents alike.
