Limitless | Sara Takanashi

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.

As a 26 year old, Sara Takanashi is one of the most successful female ski jumpers to date, as well as one of the most successful athletes in the history of the sport. She has won four World Cup overall titles (an all-time female record), seven World Championship medals and a Winter Olympic medal. She has broken countless records in the sport and has cemented herself in the history books.

In the last couple of years, her dominance has slipped. As a result, she had to completely reinvent her jumping form to maintain her competitiveness. This process has taken a few years to realise.

What continues to fuel Sara’s pursuit for the “perfect form” and how has her journey been to transform her form?
