Don’t you love a good sporting event? Both on the field and in the cinema. The London 2012 Olympics are well under way, and we’re all feeling inspired. We could swim to victory, ride for that gold medal, run like our shoes are on fire. If they can do it, so can we, because the world is our oyster.
Okay, so most of us will never actually get to compete, but we can sit back, be in awe of our respective country’s Olympians, and watch an inspiring sports movie or two, while we wait patiently for those gold, silver and bronze medals to roll in.
There are plenty of sporting movies that deserve at least a nod of approval. Some are based around true Olympic stories, others avoid the games and are simply made for your sporting entertainment. Either way we thought it was the perfect opportunity to give you a little insight into some of the sporting movie gems you might have missed over the years.
Starting with a 90s children’s classic, that you will at least know by reputation.
