Olympic Fever: watch 9 films about winter sports
As Olympic fever comes to a pitch this week, check out our collection of films on winter sports. Old and new, these films offer a glimpse into the passion, dedication, talent, and spirit of our ambitious athletes (and the downhill racing is particularly heart-stopping!)
Hockey, hockey, and more hockey!
Of course, we have to start this off with Canada’s favourite sport: we’ve got a ton of hockey films for you to peruse.
Looking for hockey history? Check out The Rocket, a portrait of Maurice Richard, one of the greatest players of all time. In French with English subtitles, the film features interviews with the legend himself, as he recounts his introduction to hockey and rise to fame. “I never thought I’d make the team,” he says of his first visit to the Canadiens training camp in 1942, “but the war was starting. I don’t think they invited many recruits to train that year.”
