Synopsis
Produced by Bill Gerber (Gran Torino) and Sky Christopherson (U.S Olympic athlete) ‘Personal Gold’ tells the story of four underdog women who become America’s medal hope at the London Olympics after the men’s team is banned during the Lance Armstrong drug scandal. Underfunded, the women turn to their husbands as mechanics and two dedicated coaches who use data rather than drugs to attempt to compete with the power houses of Australia and Great Britain and win the U.S’s first women’s track cycling medal in 20 years.
