Full Synopsis
"Now after fifty years, it's time for Canada to stand up and cheer. Stand up and cheer everybody! The Olympics Salt Lake City, 2002, men's ice hockey gold medal: Canada!" —Bob Cole, CBC play-by-play broadcaster

There was no iconic Paul Henderson moment, nor a Sidney Crosby golden goal, but Canada's 5-2 victory against the rival United States in the men's 2002 Olympic gold medal game wiped out fifty years of frustration for the nation that invented ice hockey.

Canadians from coast to coast were whipped into a frenzy, with impromptu celebrations on streets like Granville in Vancouver, Yonge in Toronto, Ste-Catherine in Montreal, and Portage and Main in Winnipeg.

Gold is the definitive chronicle of how the men of Team Canada made history. Marking twenty years since the momentous victory, Tim Wharnsby delivers the inside story of how Gretzky built the team and Pat Quinn got them to the gold medal, featuring exclusive interviews with players, coaches, and personnel.

"Barry Abrams sounds least comfortable. When narrating dialogue, he raises his pitch to make the speakers sound giddily excited, and occasionally even like children. A more measured tone would have been appropriate for the group of hardened hockey players." ---AudioFile
