Win a DVD

Based on the true story of two sprinters competing to win gold at the 1924 Paris Olympics, Chariots of Fire is a must-see for all aspiring sports stars and an inspirational film that ought to be in every PE teacher's resource cupboard.

The original film swept the board at the 1981 Oscars, winning four awards including best picture. A newly released version is out now to buy and rent on video and DVD from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and we have six copies of the special edition two-disc DVD to give away if you can answer this question correctly: name the two athletes on whose story the film is based.

Send your answers, marked Chariots offer, on a postcard to Friday magazine at the TES address or by email to Entries close on May 12.
