PUTT-ING IN THE WORK (HOC316) (TV-G)

We begin in the ring with tae kwon do champion Aaliyah Powell. Her journey began with her older sisters, who were world-class athletes themselves. This shaped Aaliyah into the motivated and intense athlete she is today. Then, Avery Zweig uses her talents to raise money for a sick custodian at her school. Her success raises awareness and love for her friend to a whole new level. Then, we jump in the water, where the newest Olympic sport will take place. The 2020 Summer Olympics will be the first Olympic Games to have surfing as a sport. We meet some of the surfers fighting to qualify for the historic event and get a first-hand look at the passion and sheer athletic ability that go into this sport. See what it takes to be among the first surfers to compete in the Olympic Games. Plus, we profile Dustin Johnson, a U.S. Open winner and former No. 1-ranked golfer in the world. Early in his career, Dustin found himself in the rough, both on and off the course. But his family, including former hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, was there for him to get him back on the fairway when he needs them the most.
