About Fast Girls
A street savvy girl develops an intense rivalry with an ambitious wealthy athlete as they battle for the chance to represent their country at an international sporting event. Shania (Lenora Crichlow) loves running but can't afford new trainers, while Lisa (Lily James) is rich, spoilt and determined to be the best at everything. Their worlds collide when Shania joins Lisa's sprint team, and both hope to be picked for the 2011 World Championships (which are in no way related to the 2012 Olympics). The girls deal with friendships, a crush on Karl the physiotherapist (Bradley James) and the threat of debilitating injury as the big day draws near. Lisa's father (Rupert Graves) is convinced that his daughter is the best on the team, while Shania is given sensible advice by the team's world-weary coach (Noel Clark).
