Nagano 1998 Official Film | Nagano '98 Olympics, Stories of Honor and Glory

Entitled, “Nagano '98: Stories of Honor and Glory”, Bud Greenspan's film pays tribute to the athletes of the world competing on the slopes and in the stadia of this charming Japanese city. Heavy snow and thick fog may have threatened some of the key events, but all were held successfully. Particular consideration is given to the Norwegian Bjørn Dæhlie, the finest cross-country skier of his era; Japanese ski jumper Masahiko Harada; and Chinese figure skater Lu Chen, who wins a bronze medal despite injury and depression. Bud Greenspan's abiding virtue is that he sympathises with losers as well as winners.
