Jesse Owens,Summary.

There are a lot of great Olympic athletes but somewhere along that line, was a standout athlete named Jesse Owens. Owen's had beaten all the odds and despite what Adolf Hitler had in mind Owen's still competed in the Berlin summer Olympics in 1936.

Jesse Owens was born James Cleveland Owens in Alabama 1913 , Out of 11 children Owen's was the seventh. As a child he was often really ill, Owen's being an energetic child on the playground was one day noticed by a man named Charles Riley, who later became his coach and the one man who changed Owen's life. Owens made his first splash in the athletic  world in 1935 as he set new world records for Long Jump. No athlete has ever been able to achieve this kind of victory Owens had made.

Owens attended the summer olympics in Berlin, amongst all the hatred around him  he still played to the best of his ability and won four consecutive gold medals.
