Default Sports-themed songs

With the Tokyo Jihen news, how about we post some sport-related songs? I'll start with a video from my fellow South Londoner, Roots Manuva.
Roots Manuva - Witness the Fitness

Bonus points probably if you can get a track that includes the sounds of the sport in a creative way. So there's Kraftwerk's
Tour De France [YouTube link] (1983) which features a cyclist panting away in the intro. Got to say though I really like the updated 2003 version:

Got that off a Hexstatic video podcast... which was brilliant and not available for legit downloading anymore!

I'm surprised nobody mentioned "Gonna Fly Now" or "Eye of the Tiger".
