Summary
Four fearless young women hurtle towards the 2006 Winter Olympics in a bold Australian scientific experiment to create a champion. Nerves of Steel is a fast and furious behind-the-scenes documentary tracing the rise of Australia's first all-female skeleton team as they race toward the Torino Winter Olympics in February 2006. A team of sports physiologists handpicked four elite athletes - Bindee Johnston, a sprinter; Melissa Hoar, a surfer; Michelle 'Steely' Steele, a gymnast, and Emma Lincoln-Smith, a surfer and all-round athlete - to break into a discipline unheard of in Australia. It's not for the faint-hearted. It's a head-first, full-throttle slide down a winding, icy track, with brutal consequences when things go wrong
