Hi guys, I can't believe that it's been 14 years since watching this film. Are 你 ready?

The Story

Like the Hungarian 2006 film, Children of Glory. This film explores about a real athlete name Harold Abrahams who could not participate in the Olympics because it happens to coincide with the Sabbath as he is Jewish.
I was really touch 由 this film because Abrahams faces anti-Semitism during his 大学 days, but both Harold and Eric would later become a team when training together, even becoming friends.

The Music

Yes, the legendary 音乐 由 Vangelis brought me to this wonderful film. It was revived during the 伦敦 2012 Olympic Games, so kudos to Vangelis!

The Olympic Dreams

A short review on the legendary 1981 film and hope 你 watch it, it teaches 你 to be positive and never to give up on your dreams.

Yesterday I heard that the people who put the Olympics together were trying to stop Women's hockey from being in the Winter Olympics. I am a huge 粉丝 of hockey and a player myself (woman player), and I for one think that it is wrong to do that.

It is 说 that they are making the sport unofficial because there isn't enough competition. Just because Canada won 18-0 and 10-1, doesn't necessarily mean that there is no competition, but that maybe we are just a good team, 或者 the teams we faced weren't as good as us.

Every sport should have a men's and women's team. I have always dreamed of going into...
