The Jesse Owens Product Overview

Jesse Owens is recognised as one of the most famous athletes in track and field history and the first athlete to ever win four gold medals at a single Olympic games.
Jesse Owens became a household name following the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Jesse Owens Olympic feats soon became legendary because they were accomplished in front of Germany's Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, who was loudly proclaiming to the world the superiority of the Aryan race.

Jesse Owen, an African American who grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and studied
at The Ohio State University, became an international celebrity for putting a chink in Hitler's propaganda machine.

He famously set three world records and tied another, all in less than an hour at the 1935, Big Ten track meet in Ann Arbor, Michigan - a feat that has never been equaled and has been called "the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport".
