Let the games begin with these movies

There’s nothing like a high-energy, all-inspiring sports movie to get you pumped for the summer games. Whether you’re more of a track and field person or like to stay low to the ground with a little wrestling, there’s something for everybody with list of both classic and modern sports movies.

Chariots of Fire

In the religiously divided United Kingdom of the 1920s, two men compete for the gold, desperate to illustrate the value of their strongly opposing convictions. Watch as competition turns into an actual friendship in this true story.

Cool Runnings
(1993)

Loosely based on a true story, four Jamaican bobsledders dream of Winter Games gold despite never having seen snow. They hope that with the help of a disgraced former champion they’ll become eligible and become victorious during the games.

Race
(2016)

Race follows the true story of Jesse Owens, an American athlete whose journey to become the greatest track and field athlete ever brings him face to face with Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy at the 1936 games.

Munich
(2005)

A secret Israeli squad is tasked with finding and assassinating 11 Palestinians accused of plotting the 1972 Munich massacre during the big games. Follow this dramatic true story and the personal toll this mission takes on the entire team.

Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum) finds himself looking for a way out of the shadow of his much more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo).
