John Williams – Call of the Champions
March 27, 2011Posted by on
Call me overly melodramatic, but I just love listening to the various Olympic themes during my workouts. The triumphant melodies are inspiring, providing apt background music to a grueling workout (whether it be from fatigue or sheer boredom).
John Williams’ Call of the Champions is one of my favorites for it captures the essence of the arduous Olympic journey – and the triumph of reaching the pinnacle of sports.
On the day I get to visit (or maybe compete or at least train, who knows?) the Olympiastadion in Berlin, I’ll be listening to this particular track from my trusty iPod!
