In an incident similar to the one with an over sized discus, Robert Garrett is seen trying to enter the Olympic Shot Put event with an over sized shot put. In reality, however, unlike the incident with the discus, which is very well documented, there is no record of a similar incident with the shot put ever having taken place. See more »

Just 10 days before the Athens 2004 Olympics games, I spent my evening watching this film inspired by the title. In the beginning I thought of the movie as a historical description of the first modern olympic games. Unfortunately a more accurate title would be "The American olympic team during the 1896 Olympic games" since this movie is all about it and nothing else. Four hours of lame dialogues, poor acting, historical inaccuracies and the infinite number of the US national anthem add up to one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Minimum comments for the achievements, the training and the difficulties the other athletes came across.
