It stands for "Jesse Owens". The World Championships are taking place in Berlin, site of the 1936 Olympics, where Owens won four gold medals (100m, 200m, 4x100m relay and long jump), defying Hitler and the Nazis' propaganda of 'Aryan racial superiority'. Marlene (Owens) Dortch, the granddaughter of Jesse Owens and Kai Long, the son of Luz Long (the German long jumper who helped Owens successfully qualify for the long jump, and who consequently finished second to Owens) will present the medals for the World Championship long jump.
Jesse Owens was the first African-American to run track in the Olympics. Hitler said that the Germans would win the most medals, so he challenged Jesse and Jesse proved him wrong by winning four gold medals.A Gold Medal winner and the fastest man on earth. Well who was on earth.and also was the first african american thank u very muchJames Cleveland "Jesse" Owens was an American track and field athlete. He participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, where he achieved international fame by winning four gold medals: one each in the 100 meters, the 200 meters, the long jump, and as part of the 4x100 meter relay team.
Owens got the name "Jesse" when a teacher misunderstood his initials, J.C.
Because he proved to the world, or most importantly, Hitler, that it wasn't just the Aryan race that was great. Hitler thought that no one could be better than his people and wanted to prove this by holding the Olympics in his country! Jesse Owens won 4 gold medals at the Olympics (100m and 200m sprint, long jump and 400m relay). This embarrassed Hitler so much so that he was absent for the medal giving to Jesse Owens even when he was there for his countries wins. Hitler was proved wrong on that day, his Aryan race wasn't the best at everything! I hope this helps :P
