Dan Bittner delivers this captivating story of determination and perseverance. Hearing about Nick Baumgartner's journey to winning an Olympic Gold Medal in snowboarding is an emotional roller-coaster ride. His memoir takes listeners through his years of sacrifice as he travels for competitions, starting at the bottom and working his way up. He learns the ropes of the sport, networks with sponsors, and receives support from his hometown, Iron River, Michigan. Bittner ensures that listeners will feel Baumgartner's willpower, focus, and excitement during his 17 years of training. Obstacles include injuries and time away from his beloved son. Finally, in 2022, Baumgartner achieves his dream of winning gold in the inaugural mixed snowboard cross event with teammate Lindsey Jacobellis.
