    I am not much on to western type of music- but from my experience from interacting with athletes of teams that participated in International competitions, I gathered that tracks from films on sports that showcased patriotism ,togetherness and sacrifice- aroused them, energised them and motivated them to do well for themselves and the country.Like in Hollywood, number of films are produced in India[ Bollywood]on sports themes.Select Tracks from these movies highlighting the above qualities definitely motivate the athletes and give them an urge to compete well and give their best.
