Limitless | Ryoyu Kobayashi

Limitless is a documentary series on four world-class snow-athletes, each striving to reach a new level in their performance ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Ski jumper Ryoyu Kobayashi suddenly came into the limelight winning the 2018-19 season with a dominant performance: thirteen World Cup event wins and winning all six possible titles in the World Cup season. He also became the third ski jumper in the history to win all four competitions in the prestigious Four Hills Tournament.

In the following season however, he struggled with the pressure to back up his previous stellar performance.

This episode delves into Ryoyu’s quest to return to his top form.
