    Hard to believe but Devin ran faster than Jesse Owens did while in college. Hopefully he’ll get the right guidance to build on his tremendous natural athleticism.

    Jesse Owens, known as the perennial debunker of white supremacy who humiliated Germany (or the prover of black athletic supremacy). They will rarely tell you about the overall medal count... though ;)

    This is from a few days ago but he is looking good in his first couple of races despite missing most of the early summer season.


    Devin Quinn ran 10.19 (1.8w) in Florida today. Also 10.17 (2.1w) in the heats.

    Just to be fair, Jesse Owens dominated the Olympics in 1936.

    Copied - At the Berlin 1936 Olympic Games, Jesse Owens, won gold in the 100m, 200m, 4x100m and Long Jump – all in front of the watching Adolf Hitler. As an African-American athlete, Owens set three world records (200m, two in 4x100m), shattering Hitler's theories of Aryan superiority.
