"Rocky" has fought off competition from "Cool Runnings" and "Million Dollar Baby" to be named the U.K.'s favorite sports film.
 
Sylvester Stallone's 1976 movie about underdog boxer Rocky Balboa topped a poll by Lovefilm ahead of the 1993 comedy about the Jamaican Olympic bobsleigh team and Hilary Swank's Oscar-winning turn in Million Dollar Baby.
 
Lovefilm editor Helen Cowley says, "With the (2012 London) Olympics on their way... sport is a hot topic - from living room to locker room. Whether it is football favorites, bobsleighing blunders or boxing Balboas we love to watch sporting heroes cross the finishing line in style."
 
The top five is rounded out by "Raging Bull" and "The Wrestler," while other movies in the top 10 include "The Blind Side," "The Damned United" and "The Fighter."
