Inclusion is on full display in the new film Full Out 2 – You Got This! to be released digitally on Monday, 23 March 2020 for purchase and rental. The movie, based on a true story, chronicles the University of Oklahoma Women’s Gymnastics team as they try to recapture a national championship without their star athlete.
Chelsea Werner, a gymnast and model with Down syndrome, has a significant role in the film demonstrating both her leadership and athletic abilities as a coach assistant. She is seen encouraging team members, doing flip dismounts off the beam and back flip tumbling passes on the mat.
