0

LOS ANGELES: A gold medal won by Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and a robe worn by Muhammad Ali before defending his world title in a 1976 heavyweight fight are among available items in an online auction. The online sporst memorabilia auction at SCPAuctions.com will begin Wednesday and conclude on December 7 and also include items from retired NFL star Warren Moon and baseball’s Jackie Robinson and Goose Gossage. With Germany’s Adolph Hitler using the Olympics as a backdrop for notions of a Aryan master race, US legend Owens famously showed the power of a black athlete by capturing gold in the 100 and 200 meters, the long jump and the 4x100m relay.
