"Why don't you start your run a few centimeters further back? You don't need to win today. Tomorrow is what counts."
These were the words that the German Luz Long spoke to Jesse Owens during the qualification for the long jump of the Olympics in Berlin in 1936. Jesse Owens smiled back at him and did what the German advised him to do. He qualified that day and won a gold medal the following day. He also won the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay in 1936. Adolf Hitler would not shake his hand. But for Jesse Owen, something else was more important. He won something that was bigger than his four gold medals. He won a friendship.
