The Cortez Public Library plans to show the documentary film “The Last Gold” on Monday, July 11, in collaboration with the Sunflower Theatre.
“The Last Gold” is the USA Swimming-produced documentary spotlighting the 1976 women’s U.S. Olympic Team and the East German doping scandal. Considered one of the greatest untold stories in Olympic history, The Last Gold details 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.
Show time is 7 p.m., and doors open at 6:15 p.m.
Admission is a suggested donation of $5.
