Summary
Reed Albergotti (Wall Street Journal) is calling the film 'Miracle meets Moneyball' describing the behind-the-scenes experience of four underdog women cyclists who become America's hope for a medal at the 2012 London Olympics after the men's team is banned during the Lance Armstrong drug scandal. ..In this post-Armstrong period, the underfunded women turn to volunteers, including their husbands to patch together an innovative approach with dozens of innovators contributing including world-renown digital health leader Dr Eric Topol, (Scripps), Dr Gil Blander (MIT), Dr Sonia Ancoli-Israel (UCSD), and Quantified Self co-founder Gary Wolf. ..This {u2018}Data not Drugs{u2019} approach attempted to do the impossible; win the first U.S. Women's Track Cycling medal in over 20 years...REVIEWS.."A must-see Olympic story! Expertly explores the intersection of sports, science and ingenuity."{u2014} Gary Wolf, Wired.."Personal Gold offers a chance to see what an amateur but high-tech and fair approach could look like. Hammer, Reed, Bausch, and Tamayo had found a silver lining, a route back for USA Cycling, and perhaps other sports too.
