Jesse's Big Moments

When jesse enters the Olympics

The big win

It all happened when Jesse Owens entered the 1936 Olympics. He won so many times that he made his own medal room. Sometimes when he feels like he isn't a winner he takes a stroll in his medal room and remembers all the times he was a winner. He got so tired he retired after that. He then made his own business and hired a bunch of men to help him.
