"After watching this documentary, I have come to realize that our adversities, hardships, and obstacles were put in our way to inspire and give others hope," Frimpong says. "I hope more people get the opportunity to see the documentary, especially the youth, and know they have what it takes to be successful, to know that they have what it takes to be champions and to know they have what it takes to cross beyond obstacles to fulfill their dreams."

More than anything, Frimpong says he is thankful his story meant so much and made such a positive impact on the 2018 Winter Games. He hopes his message will continue to inspire others in the years ahead, both through competition and by example.

"I left something positive behind during the Olympics. I'm glad I can bring joy and a smile on the face of people in South Korea," Frimpong said.

"Reaching a billion people individually will be impossible, but this documentary will help reach a billion people. The Billion people who were told success was unattainable, or the billion underdogs who refuse to give up."

'Crossing Beyond' will make its international premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival in November.
