Buried among Apple TV + productions, "The greatness code" has gone unnoticed, mini-documentaries on sport in which stars such as LeBron James, Alex Morgan, Tom Brady, Shaun White, Usain Bolt, Katie Ledecky and Kelly Slater tell us about the moment of their life in which everything has aligned to transform them into winning machines, making a qualitative leap that has placed them well before the others.

It is an atypical production in almost everything:

The short duration of the episodes: about six minutes



Its extreme focus: they are not interviews, they just tell about that moment

Their graphic treatment: they don't talk about the moment when the media or the public raised them to the altar, but the moment when they reached that level of perfection in execution and how they experienced it. That's why many times there are no cameras filming and you have to recreate the feeling, the moment, the situation.

The limited offer: seven stars, seven sports, seven episodes.

The protagonists are Usain Bolt (athletics), Tom Brady (soccer), Alex Morgan (soccer), Kelly Salter (surfing), Shaun White (snowboarding) and Katie Ledecky (swimming).

For me it almost falls into the experimental genre: how to represent a moment in the career of an athlete, told by himself and convey what he has heard ...

There are no questions, no introductions, no collection of results. If, like me, you don't know who most of the athletes interviewed were, you are faced with a pill for improvement, leadership, self-knowledge, etc. depending on the athlete, which allows you to focus on what they tell you, without being distracted like a "fan".

At this point it is not known if there will be a second season, although it seems to me a fantastic idea that could be exported to many other world famous athletes, of course, for this they should transcend the North American nationality and focus on the great world athletes - football , tennis, motorcycling, formula one… we all have names in our heads that we would like to know how they lived that moment when everything turned out to be perfect.



Did you see her? Tell me what you think. If you haven't seen it, the sum of all the episodes equates to one chapter of any other series, so I recommend you give it a try. I think you will love it.
