Description: In 1936, against a backdrop of swastikas flying and storm troopers goose-stepping, an African-American son of sharecroppers won a staggering four Olympic gold medals and single-handedly crushed Hitlers myth of Aryan supremacy. The story of Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympic games is that of an athletic performance that transcends sports. It is also the intimate and complex tale of the courage of one remarkable man. Drawing on unprecedented access to the Owens family, previously unpublished interviews, and exhaustive archival research, Jeremy Schaap transports us to Germany and tells the dramatic tale of Owens and his fellow athletes at the contest dubbed the Nazi Olympics. With his trademark incisive reporting and rich storytelling, Schaap reveals what really transpired over those tense, exhilarating weeks. Like Neal Bascombs The Perfect Mile and David Margolicks Beyond Glory, Triumph is a nuanced and riveting work of sports history.
