an underdog story

Miracle meets Moneyball
— Reed Albergotti, Wall Street Journal

'Miracle meets moneyball'


PERSONAL GOLD - described by Reed Albergotti of the Wall Street Journal as 'Miracle meets Moneyball' gives a behind-the-scenes experience of four underdog women cyclists who become America's hope for a medal at the London Olympics after the men's team is banned during the Lance Armstrong drug scandal. 

The underfunded women turn to volunteers, including their husbands and an innovative approach using 'Data not Doping' in an attempt to do the impossible; win the first U.S. Women's Track Cycling medal in over 20 years. 

One of the best underdog films
since Rocky!
