Did Hitler really snub Jesse Owens?

Chanced upon an interesting article on Rediff (which in itself was quite ‘interesting’, considering the mostly lousy stuff they put up these days). :p

The article pertains to the 1936 Olympics, held at Berlin. Hitler had become a force to reckon with, and this event was meant to showcase Nazi supremacy, when along came a black man and upset all those calculations.

Yup, this is indeed about the famous Jesse Owens and how Hitler snubbed him. But did it really happen that way?

Well, read the article to know about an interesting twist to this tale 🙂
