The Man who beat Hitler

The Man who beat Hitler

It has long been regarded as the greatest sporting snub in history – when Adolf Hitler stormed out of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin because Germany had been humiliated by a black man.

The moment was 1936 and an incredible American athlete called Jesse Owens had just run his way to the first of four gold medals in the 100 metres.

Hitler, who had shaken hands the previous day with all the German Olympic winners, left the stadium furious that his Ayran supermen had been beaten by their supposed racial inferior.
