When the younger, faster and fitter Phil (Jack Matthews) arrives at the club, Len's legendary status starts to crumble. Then Len sees Phil arriving in the company of another man. Phil is gay. After the annual awards dinner, Len finds Phil in the Club House locker room and violently attacks him. To Len's surprise, Phil refuses to rat on Len about the beating. When Phil wins the annual competition, Len's defeat is final. In an act of revenge, Len gets Phil drunk and subjects him to a series of humiliating acts. But the hatefulness Len to come face to face with a fundamental question: can he accept the truth about his own sexuality?
