It beats out ‘Rocky’ for ‘best sports training sequence ever’

If there is an unofficial Olympic anthem this year, it’s gotta be Pet Shop Boys’s “Winner.” The song’s basically the new “Eye of the Tiger.” Now the uplifting synthpop anthem, tailor made for sports training montages and motivating you on the elliptical, has a video to accompany it. The video takes on a documentary style approach to covering the London Rollergirls, an all female roller derby team. The video’s central focus is “Dirty Diana,” a trans recruit for the team, as she trains and bonds with her teammates. It’s probably the encouraging 4 minutes and 15 seconds online at the moment.
Watch the video below.
