THROWBACK THURSDAY (SPORTS HISTORY)

Today, as we are embracing another Olympiad, lets go back in time to celebrate and remember one special athlete that we all know, either by sports highlights or if fortunate enough to witness him in live action, Jesse Owens.  August 4, 1936, during the Summer Olympics in pre-World War 2 Germany, Jesse Owens won the gold medal in the long jump event.  Below is a short clip of the long jump event that he won.
