EDITORS COMMENTS
This iconic photograph captures the historic moment when American athlete Jesse Owens, dressed in his track suit and looking focused, takes off for his gold medal-winning leap in the Long Jump event at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. With a powerful stride and an unyielding determination, Owens soared through the air, producing a record-breaking jump of 26 ft 5 in (8.05 m). This triumphant moment marked one of four gold medals that Owens earned during the games, defying the racist beliefs and expectations of Adolf Hitler and Nazi officials who had hoped to use the Olympics to promote their superiority ideology. The image of Owens, mid-air and suspended in time, symbolizes not only his athletic prowess but also his courage and resilience in the face of discrimination and adversity. This photograph is a testament to the power of sports and the indomitable human spirit, and remains an enduring symbol of the Olympic Games and the history of race relations in the 20th century.
