Jesse Owens was described in his life as "perhaps the foremost and most famous athlete of all time". Owens set three world records and touched a fourth in less than an hour at the 1935 "Big Ten Track Meet" in Michigan - an achievement that has never been surpassed since then and has been called "the top 45 minutes in sports history".
Owens became world famous after his performance in the Olympic Summer Games in 1936 after winning 4 gold medals: 100 meters, long jump, 200 meters and 4x100 meters relay.
He was by far the foremost athlete in the Olympic Games and won great respect among his opponents but also created great frustration among Hitler and the Nazi regime who had hoped that German athletes would show their superiority in the competitions.
