The Most Engaging Movies and Books on Sports History

why you should read books on sports history 

2020 will be written down in sports history books as a year of lost hope and cravings for live events. It was the fourth time in the history of sports when the Summer Olympics were canceled (the games were also put on hold in 1916, 1940, and 1944). Finally, after sports were on hold for a year, we are back in the game! Faithful fans, if not back to the stadiums, are back to their screens, fervently watching their favorite sports.

This season is remarkably packed compared to the stillness of 2020, both with live events and controversies spurred around such initiatives as the European Super League or whether we should hold the Olympics this year at all. In the time between watching your favorite sportsmen and women pedaling, running, jumping, kicking, and serving, have you ever wondered about the history of sports you’re so inspired by? Sports books and movies based on true stories amount to a fulfilling opportunity to learn more about a particular sport so that you can later maximize your excitement from live sports events, training, and performing yourself!
