Jesse Owens - The Olympian Who Stood Up to Hitler

Jesse Owen - Legends Report

By Lewis Dunn, Legends Report Contributor

“We all have dreams. But in order to make our dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.”

- Jesse Owens, Berlin 1936

When you ask someone who they consider to be a ‘sporting legend’ or one of the greatest and most famous athletes ever, many may come up with Mo Farah or Usain Bolt.

    Lewis, great article/post! Very well done!
    Thank you for reminding us of those legends that rewrite human history with so much grace. Jesse Owens is an excellent example.
    It truly shows the incredible power that strength of character, determination, discipline and hard work have in shattering any obstacles or barriers. And to stoke that inner power, keeping faith as well as believing in ourselves against all odds is crucial. That’s when the support of someone (like for instance a mentor) who genuinely believes in us and/or reminds us to believe in ourselves is vital to our success and victories.
