3 Inspirational Sports Movies to Watch Ahead of the Olympics

With the Olympics approaching, the excitement and anticipation for feats of athletic prowess are palpable. Whether you’re an athlete, a sports fan, or just love a good underdog story, sports movies can be incredibly inspiring. Here are three must-watch sports films that capture the spirit of the Olympics.

Chariots of Fire (1981)

This Oscar-winning film is based on the true story of two British track athletes competing in the 1924 Olympics: Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice. The iconic Vangelis soundtrack will inspire you as much as the determination and integrity displayed by these athletes.

Miracle (2004)

Miracle tells the true story of the 1980 United States men’s Olympic hockey team and their unlikely victory against the seemingly invincible Russian squad. The film delves into the hard work and dedication required to overcome incredible odds and highlights the sheer willpower and leadership of coach Herb Brooks, played by Kurt Russell. 

Cool Runnings (1993)

Based on an unbelievable true story, Cool Runnings features the first Jamaican bobsled team trying to make it to the Winter Olympics despite numerous obstacles, including their own inexperience with the sport and the cold weather. The film is a wonderful mix of humor and heart.
