Has the four-year wait for the 2018 Winter Olympics made you hungry for more sports? This year’s incredible athletes are stunning audiences across the world, but the entertainment doesn’t have to stop after they’ve left the stadium. These five incredible films will satisfy your love for Olympic sportsmanship long after the ice has melted!

Cool Runnings: 1993

This fictional but historically-inspired film follows the story of a disgraced Olympian runner who fights for a place in the Winter Olympic games. It focuses on Jamaican sprinter Derice Bannock who — when disqualified from the Olympics — teams up with a controversial former coach to launch the first ever Jamaican bobsled team. This witty and hysterical flick redefines the definition of determination.

Miracle: 2004

This inspiring movie chronicles the true story of Herb Brooks, the coach who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey players to victory in their match against the Russian team. Kurt Russell leads this cast of both actors and athletes, who offer spine-tingling, engaging performances that will have you cheering for the champions from start to finish.

Foxcatcher: 2014

This intense narrative follows the thrilling story of “Team Foxcatcher,” founded by multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell), and U.S. Olympic wrestling champions Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and David Schultz (Mark Ruffalo). This film is a mesmerizing account of the Schultz brothers as they train on the team in Seoul, South Korea in 1988, as du Pont’s erratic behavior threatens to destroy their careers.

I Am Bolt: 2016

This stunning documentary focuses on the remarkable legacy of the fastest man in Olympic history: Usain Bolt. He dominates the screen as audiences get a look into his training, his private life, and what fuels the runner to continue to grow, excel, and succeed. This gorgeous insight into Bolt’s experiences highlights the jaw-dropping, superhuman abilities of a determined athlete at work.

I, Tonya: 2017

Focusing on one of the biggest scandals in Winter Olympic history, I, Tonya highlights the life story of figure skater Tonya Harding and her debated role in the attack on competitor Nancy Kerrigan. The film stars Margot Robbie as Tonya, who delivers a fierce, honest, and raw performance of Harding’s growth, stardom, and deterioration throughout her skating career. The film can be streamed in early March, just in time to help you recover from those post-Olympic blues.
