Synopsis by Sarah Ing
From Marion Jones' unprecedented three gold medals to Rulon Gardner's overthrow of the Russian wrestling champ Aleksandr Karelin, the Sydney 2000 Olympics were full of breathtaking moments. These highlights are packaged together in Quest for Gold. The video replays the 17-day event with commentary by Bob Costas and the NBC sports team. Whether it was a dropped hoop by a Russian favorite in the gymnastics floor event or the American women's domination in basketball, the 27th games were memorable. It was hard to catch all the action in Australia; now, armchair Olympians can relive history with Quest for Gold.
