Legendary Track and Field star Jesse Owens first rose to fame when he set three world records and tie for a fourth at the 1935 Big Ten track meet, tying the record for the 100-yard dash, set records for the long jump, 220-yard sprint, and 220-yard low hurdles, all in a span of 45 minutes that was dubbed “The greatest 45 minutes ever in sport.” Owens would participate in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, during the reign of the Nazis and Adolf Hitler. Upon his arrival, Owens was persuaded by Adidas founder Adi Dassler to wear Gebruder Dassler Schufabrik shoes, thus becoming the first African American male to receive a sponsorship. Owens would go on to make history, single-handedly destroying Hitler’s myth of a white supremacy by winning gold medals in the 100 meters, long jump, 200 meters, and 4 x 100-meter relay, becoming the most successful athlete of the of the 1936 Summer Olympics.

Presented here is an 8 x 10-inch black and white framed photograph of four-time Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens.

The 8 x 10-inch black and white framed photo of legendary track and field star Jesse Owens comes with an LOA from Beckett Authentication.
