Which movie was this?

I remember seeing this years ago.
It is about some college (probably. For all I remember olympics too!). There is this guy who rows sculls. He meets a coach. The coach designs a seat with rollers for him, which slides on rails. He practices hard, and eventually wins the competition(of course)
I can still recall its soundtrack (piano). Awesome movie.

I heard of The Flying Dutchman. No. Not because I saw the Pirates of the Caribbean. Because I also know about Mary Celeste.

I figured it out.
I was getting confused between The Boy in Blue which is about rowing/sculling and Chariots of Fire which has that awesome soundtrack!
I agree. Here's the link:
