Share This Resource

The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

Chariots Of Fire depicts the incredible true story of two runners whose paths cross in the 1924 Olympics. Eric Liddell is a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God. Harold Abrahams is an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice. These runners learn from each other as they represent different countries and different hardships. Major themes presented in this film include the determination to succeed, ability to not give up, and a notion that athletes are participating in something bigger than themselves.
