Poll: Nike’s Laurel Wreath of Victory Goes to _____

Besides being the name of a shoe company, Nike is the Greek goddess of Victory, Speed and Strength (the Greek valued the last two in that order). She awarded the Laurel wreath of victory to winners in sports contests and in battle. When it came to war, she was Zeus’ chariot driver. She is the only winged Greek goddess. Her symbol is the same symbol that the shoe company uses. It represents her wings. Which of these 6.9 or better films that represents one of her attributes (contest or war victory, and contests of speed, and strength) would she give her award, the Laurel Wreath of Victory, to? Or better yet, you get to complete the sentence “And Nike’s Laurel Wreath of Victory goes to ______.”

Submit your contestant’s entry forms here. Remember the contestant has to be 6.9 or higher and over 20,000 votes. You just can’t have slop representing a goddess. Why 6.9? That is the rating of the film that actually has her symbol appearing in it!
