Meet Kathryn Bertine, elite triathlete, former professional figure skater, and starving artist. In the summer of 2006, she was out of a job, a home, and a general sense of direction when ESPN staked her to a dream: she was given two years to make the 2008 summer Olympics in Beijing—by any means possible. "As Good As Gold" is the hilarious, heroic account of Bertine’s serial exertions in the realms of triathlon, modern pentathlon, team handball, track cycling, road cycling, rowing, open water swimming, luge, and more.
