Movie Info

The story of Olympic downhill racer Bill Johnson is related in this made-for-TV biopic. Future ER star Anthony Edwards plays Johnson, who while growing up in Oregon was known far and wide for his capacity as a troublemaker. After several brushes with the law (one landing him behind bars), Johnson straightens out and flies right when he develops an interest in skiing. Dennis Weaver co-stars as Johnson's supportive dad. Going for the Gold was first telecast May 18, 1985, less than a year after Johnson's Gold Medal win at the Sarajevo Winter Olympics.
