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.
