Die Dokumentation über die erste Olympiade, Blut, Ehre und Ruhm.
HISTORY takes you to the First Olympics where athletes often struggle to the death and victors were honoured almost as gods. The ancient Olympic games were savage competitions in which the athletes gave their blood and sometimes their lives in order to be called the best and to avoid the dishonour of defeat. Athletes were idolised not least of all for their godlike perfection of form. They were also idolised for their fearlessness and nerve, and contest bordered on the suicidal. Bloody boxing matches of gruesome voracity and chariot races in which few made it to the finish line. So as we prepare to honour new sporting heroes in 2012 spare a thought for these original Olympians, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice in the pursuit of victory.
Granted unprecedented behind the scenes access, director Caroline Rowland highlights the stories and challenges faced by David Rushida-Kenya's gold medal winner in the men's 800m who broke his own record in what was described as the greatest 800m race of all time, the incredible track cyclist Laura Trott-a double gold medallist who is now Britain's most famous cyclist, boxer Katie Taylor - Ireland's only gold medallist at London 2012 who won the Women's Lightweight boxing and US swimmer Missy Franklin - who won an incredible four gold medals at the age of 17.
With a striking contemporary soundtrack that perfectly captures the spirit of the summer of 2012, FIRST captures the London Olympic Games as you've need seen it before, evoking the emotion and magic of the greatest Olympic Games ever.
Soundtrack features tracks by Ellie Goulding, Underworld, Michael Kiwanuka, Seye, Jess Mills, Delphic, Olly Murs, Two Door Cinema Club, Jack Bugg, Beach House, Chase & Status, Jack Penate, Snow Patrol and Brandon Flowers.
