One of the Best Sports Films

One of my all-time favorite sports films. This is a film that it is impossible not to cheer at - a portrait of an athlete that transcends the sports and focuses, instead, on the human relationships surrounding the Olympic event. Of course, the triumphant final moments rank up there, for me, with films like Rocky and Hoosiers in showing exciting final sporting sequences. The theme, of course, is inimitable and perfectly fits the tone of the film.
