House of Delegates update: Guest speaker: Mike Unger, USA Swimming Assistant Director and co-producer of the The Last Gold, will speak about the story and production of this documentary detailing the heroic efforts of the women’s 1976 U.S. Olympic swim team as they competed against the systematically-doped East Germans. After an entire competition of disappointing results, winning no races and facing critical media that heaped on additional pressure, the U.S. women rallied together to do as a team what they could not do individually – win gold.
