Games, like movies, have the power to sway millions with their magic. Nor is this the only link between the two mass entertainers. Many players have gone on to make it big in films, while scores of sports legends have been the inspiration behind blockbusters. With Olympics, the greatest paean to the power and beauty of the human body, around the corner, Vikramdeep Johal talks about memorable sporting moments on the silver screen. 
T
he Olympics and movies are twins in a way. The first Games of the modern era were held in April, 1896, barely three months after the Lumiere brothers began a historic exhibition of motion pictures in Paris. Since then, the growth of the Olympic movement has run parallel to the development of cinema.
