Winning one gold medal is hard, imagine trying to win four of them. Well, this is exactly what Jesse Owns did in the 1936 Olympic Games. He won the long jump, 4 x 100m relay, and then both the 100m and 200m relay. It was rumored that the majority of his motivation came from Adolf Hitler, who was enraged to see Owns succeeding as much as he was.
