The year was 1936. The Berlin games, a week in early August. It was built as a showcase for Nazi Germany to demonstrate the superiority of the white athlete. But what it became was a triumph of the ages. A coronation. The moment that the most iconic Track and Field star of all time sprinted his way into history.
Jesse Owens didn’t just win four Gold Medals in Berlin that week. He leapt over notions. He defied doctrines. He turned the sports world on its ear and roared loudly in the face of political propaganda. What he did was make the most of his chance. The result? He stood atop the podium with his gold as the original king of bling. From that moment on generations have basked in his glow.
We pay tribute to one of America’s greatest groundbreakers, the legendary Track and Field icon, Jesse Owens.
