Product Description
This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Sports & Entertainment - Jesse Owens. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

James Cleveland "Jesse" Owens (he was also known as "The Buckeye Bullet,”) was an American track and field athlete and 4 time Olympic gold medalist. Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as "perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history".

His achievement of setting 3 world records and tying another in less than an hour at the 1935 Big Ten track meet has been called "the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport" and has never been equaled. At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, Owens won international fame with 4 gold medals: 100 meters, 200 meters, Long jump (record stood for 25 years), and 4 × 100 meter relay.

He was the most successful athlete at the games and as such has been credited with "single-handedly crushing Hitler's myth of Aryan supremacy.“
