Before Jesse Owens was an Olympic gold medalist, he was a poor kid in a big family. When his speed caught the eye of one of his high school teachers, he began to train seriously and his running took him all the way to the 1936 Olympics, where he was against fierce competitors and racist assumptions, breaking world records while winning medals.
