Gold in the Water Book Review

Apr 1, 2020 - Jun 30, 2020
April, 1 2020

Description

In California, a team of talented young men begin pursuing the most elusive dream in sports, the Olympic Games.  The pressure steadily increases as two best friends reach the top of the world rankings and unexpectedly find themselves direct competitors.  Their teammates include an emerging star methodically plotting to retrace his father's path to Olympic glory, as well as a super-extraordinary athlete desperate to walk away from it all.  Led by one of the most passionate coaches in sports, a brilliant and explosive strategist on a personal quest for redemption, this team of dark horses and Olympic favorites works through escalating rivalries, joyous triumphs, and heartbreaking setbacks.  It is a fascinating world of suspense and emotion where human desire for excellence rules over all, and where there are no second chances for glory.  But above all, Gold in the Water is a triumph of the human spirit.
