'Miracle meets moneyball'
Reed Albergotti of The Wall Street Journal describes PERSONAL GOLD as 'Miracle meets Moneyball', a film with a behind-the-scenes look into how four underdog women cyclists become America's medal hope at the 2012 London Olympic Games after the men's team is banned during the Lance Armstrong drug scandal.
The underfunded women turn to volunteers, including their husbands and a 'Quantified Self' experiment using 'Data not Drugs' in an attempt to do the impossible; win the first U.S. Women's Track Cycling medal in over 20 years.
