Summary
The untold and inspiring story of Eric Liddell, hero of Chariots of Fire, from his gold medal 400-meter race at the 1924 Paris Olympics, to his dedication to missionary work in China, to his last, brave years interned in a Japanese work camp during World War II
Summary
In the 1924 Olympics, devout Scottish sprinter Eric Liddell refused to run in his race -- the 100 meter -- because it fell on a Sunday. Instead, he spent the months leading up to the Olympics training for the 400, which no one expected him to win. But win he did, and his victory was later immortalized in the 1981 film Chariots of Fire. But this was only the beginning of his sacrifices and his principled stance -- at the peak of his career, Liddell went on to dedicate his life to missionary work in China, where he ultimately died in a Japanese work camp. -- Description by Shauna Griffin

The last race of the champion -- Faster. How to become a great athlete ; A cup of strong tea, please ; Coming to the crossroads ; I wonder if I'm doing the right thing? ; Dancing the tango along the Champs-Élysées ; Not for sale at any price -- Higher. Good-bye to all that ; There are no foreign lands ; "Will ye no come back again?" ; There's something I want to talk to you about ; Everywhere the crows are black ; The sharpest edge of the sword -- Stronger. The man who isn't there ; No more happy birthdays ; You can run ... but you won't catch us, old man ; Call to me all my sad captains -- What will survive of us is love
