Jesse Owen Inspires me

Jesse Owens competed in the 1936 Olympic Games which were held in Berlin, Germany. 

Jesse Owen won four gold medals at this Games.He won the 1oo metre sprint, 200 metre sprint, 4x100 metre relay race and the long jump. Owens made an Olympic record in the sprints that couldn’t be beaten  until 1984.
After the 1936 Olympics Jesse used his speed to race against horses. Sadly, Jesse Owens died on March 31st 1980 from lung cancer.
He said, "We all have dreams, but in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.''
