Winter Learning Journey D5:A3 (Bonus)
Jesse Owens was a black American athlete who participated in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He is considered to be one of the bravest and most inspirational Olympic athletes because he competed at a time when the leader of Germany (Adolf Hitler) did not want black men competing at the Olympic Games. The picture above is of Jesse from the 1930s. Someone in my family that inspires me is my uncle Christian Erick. He inspires me as he has achieved many things in his karate career including two gold medals as you can see in the photo of him below.
