Penuel: The Sammy Lee Story

Sammy Lee

July 11 - July 12, 2015

Written by David Rhee
Directed by Steve Scott

Penuel: The Sammy Lee Story is about the hard work, determination and triumph of an Olympian. As a twelve-year-old, Sammy Lee could watch as divers leapt gracefully into the public swimming pool. Despite his overwhelming desire to try diving himself, as a Korean American (like any person of color) he could only use the pool once a week. Never would Sammy Lee have guessed that, sixteen short years later, he would become the first Asian American ever to win Olympic gold.
