Top 5 Sports Movies/Documentaries of all time


Like a lot of Australians, many ACA members are passionate about sports beyond our great game and take a great interest in all that's written/spoken/screened/ argued on them.

Here at ACA headquarters it got us thinking about asking: "What's your Top 5?"

Do you have a favourite sports movie that has you glued each and every time it comes on screen?

Is there a sports story that provided you with inspiration during or after your career?

Have you seen a sports documentary that shaped, reinforced or completely changed the way you view an athlete, team or sport?

Over the next few months we are will ask you to send in your lists and help us put together an ACA Members' Top 5 in a range of different categories. This month we are asking:

"What are your Top 5 Sports Movies/Documentaries of all time?"

To whet your appetite and get you started, here's a list the ACA Staff have put together.

  • Rocky
  • Mike Bassett: England Manager
  • Senna
  • Pumping Iron
  • ESPN 30 for 30 - Hillsborough

Send your Top 5 Sports Movies/Documentaries into Graham Manou at . It's by no means compulsory, but feel free to share any reflections or reasons why you like any of your suggestions and we'll print the best ones in our next Monthly Member Email.
