Mullen offers an acclaimed and mesmerizing account of the two-year journey made by an elite team of swimmers from California all the way to the 2000 Olympic Games. Bold and sweeping in its presentation, pace, and literary power, Gold in the Water changes our notion of the modern Olympic athlete.

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 (a mentor and his protégé) 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. This remarkable book tells a remarkable—and true, and deeply inspiring—story.
