Earlier this year, Netflix released the documentary series Cheer, chronicling the Navarro College cheer program. Navarro has become one of the most successful cheer programs in the country. Throughout the Netflix series, the athletes are shown going throughout intense physical practices and suffering serious injuries. Below is the trailer for the series.

Before watching the series, I personally would not have considered cheerleading a sport. After watching Cheer, my opinion has changed and I truly respect the work these athletes put into their support. Below is a recent routine from the Navarro College cheer team on Ellen.

 

Have you watched Cheer and had your opinion on the sport change like me?
