One of Jesse Owens’ 1936 Gold Medals Goes to Auction November 20

News, Video

Earlier this week, we told you that Jackie Robinson’s brother Mack finished just .4 seconds behind Jesse Owens in the 1936 Olympics’ 200-meter dash. Eventually, Owens, who won four gold medals that year, would give the one of those medals to famed tap-dancer and actor Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, whose family is now putting it up for auction.

Bidding for Owens’ medal will begin at SCP Auctions on November 20 and close December 7.
