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.
