Probably the most significant sporting event in the 1930s as a decade, was the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were in power at the time, and Hitler opted to only enter Aryan competiors to represent Germany believing that blond haired, blue eyed people were racially superior to other people. As if to confound these beliefs, the African-American Jesse Owens was the star of the event, winning four gold medals in the 100 metres, the 200 metres, the long jump, and as part of the 4x100 metre relay team.

Ironically, while in Berlin, Owens was free to use public transport and bars, cafes and other public facilities which he was barred from using in the USA due to segregation laws of the time.
