Welcome to Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold, the Olympian documentary series which brings to the screen untold stories of Olympic athletes who may not all have been medalists or in the limelight, but have amazing, inspiring and compelling journeys.  These stories encompass both summer and winter
living Olympians and Paralympians, from all Olympic sports and all Olympic countries. 
Production for the first two Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold stories is complete and "in the can".  The first story, "Conviction - The Steve Genter Story" is wrapping up post production and is already attracting attention.  If you are interested in viewing the entire twenty-six minute story, please contact us at info@beyondbronzesilverandgold.com.


Currently seeking a distribution platform home for Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold, as we have many, many more amazing Olympian and Paralympian stories to share with you!


The Trailers

"Conviction - The Steve Genter Story" - At the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, USA swimmer Steve Genter suffers a devastating injury just six days before his first race.  Can this Olympian summon the fortitude to continue his Olympic dream?

"The Swim - The Gabor Csepregi Story" - Gabor Csepregi represented Canada in three Olympic Games, but the toughest part of his Olympic journey would be trying to escape from behind the Iron Curtain?



Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold  Director/Producer John MacLeod is recognized by the "New Hollywood Directors Film Festival", for his directorial work on the premiere episode, "Conviction - The Steve Genter Story"!

If you are an Olympian and would like to share your story or the story of a teammate or competitor, we would love to hear from you.  If you know of an Olympian or Paralympian with an inspiring story, we would love to learn more.  


The Producer

"I've been an ardent fan of the Olympics since watching the 1968 Mexico City Games on television and viewing the many amazing Bud Greenspan Olympic films. Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold sprung from a pool deck conversation with a retired USA Olympic swimmer after a tortuous workout. We were chatting about an Olympian we both knew and ended our conversation with "I wondered what ever happened to that guy?"  I thought to myself, "We shouldn't be saying this about this Olympian.  His story is too great!"  It was my aha moment and BBSG was off and running.  I was honored and fortunate to be a member of the Canadian Olympic Water Polo Team in the 1976 Montreal Olympics.  The lasting friendships from my water polo playing days and my newly developed friendships have all been integral in the evolution of Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold.  I thank you all. As Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold moves forward in post-production, the goal is to gain distribution.  There are so many wonderful Olympian and Paralympian stories and I would love the opportunity to bring them to you!" - John
