Faster Than Jesse Owens (eBook)

$0.00

THE STORY OF EULACE PEACOCK AND THE 1936 OLYMPICS
By Ben Arogundade

At the Nazi Olympics in Berlin in 1936, African American sprinter and long jumper Jesse Owens famously won four gold medals, embarrassing Hitler and his Aryan supremacist ideals along the way. However, in the US qualifiers leading up to tournament there was another sprinter who was actually faster than Owens when they competed against each other — and who was tipped for gold ahead of him — but who narrowly missed the tournament through injury. His name was Eulace Peacock. Sporting history has relegated him to the margins, but now for the first time, his heartbreaking story is revealed in this new ebook.
