Default Great Music from Sports Games?

After hearing Fat Bard's 2MD VR Football score ( https://fatbard.bandcamp.com/album/2...ame-soundtrack ), I'm in the mood for some more original instrumental music from other sports games. Anyone have any recommendations?

That one doesn't sound very footbally. XD ... And don't you dare tell me this is because it's soccer and not football.

If this is not too mainstream:

Mario Tennis - "Tournament: 2nd Match"

The main menu theme of Super Mario Strikers is really good, likewise with the theme of the classroom stage from the sequel, Super Mario Strikers Charged. If you don't count the mario sports games then ignore this post.

Not instrumental but whatever:

My favourite from Captain Tsubasa

Which comes back in Captain Tsubasa 2 slightly arranged

But also the intro theme from Numan Athletics, if you consider it sports. It appears in Namco Graffiti Collection Best 10.

Here's one of the more obscure:

Winter Games (Epyx) - "Free Skating"

I love the ending to that one. Reminds me a bit of "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis. Umm...the game also has a nice, minimalist rendition of Tchaikovsky's Flower Waltz.
