Using the 2012 London Olympics as a springboard, Chris Cleave’s boldly ambitious Gold is the story of Zoe and Kate, two world-class athletes who have been friends since their first day of elite training. On the eve of the Olympics, they¬† must make a choice between their personal and professional goals.

Taking a look at the private lives of athletes striving for Olympic glory, Gold offers Chris Cleave’s usual thoughtful and informed perspective on the everyday impact of the issues confronting Britain today, as well as telling a story that will stay with you for a very long time. Powerful, and extremely readable, Gold will¬† be one of the books to read this summer.
