Narrated by Julianna Margulies, The Last Gold is a feature-length documentary that reveals one of the greatest stories in Olympic swimming history. At the 1976 Montreal Games, a team of doped East German athletes thrashed their rivals from the United States, until a final race.The central athlete was an American denied her due and since lost in time: Shirley Babashoff. Babashoff and her teammates were surrogates in a Cold War struggle, who battled a tragic conspiracy with honesty and tenacity. The final race…the last gold, four young women stepped to the blocks to change the course of the competition.
