Olympics - Daily program for the Berlin Olympics, 5. August 1936. 140,00 EUR
Results of some races were filled in by an American visitor to the Games, including Jesse Owen`s win in the semifinal heat of the 200 meter dash. Another African-American, Matthew Robinson, won the other heat and eventually finished second to Owens. Owens had already won the 100 meter and the long jump and his victories are listed among the winners in the rear of the program. Another African-American teammate, Frederick Pollard, Jr., also qualified in the semifinal of an event he eventually won, the 110 meter hurdles. To see these finishes, laden with political meaning, recorded on the day is outstanding.
