Owens might have bin a factor already in 1932.
Shortly before the US final olympic tryouts (where he was not present ?) he ran 10,3 at the preliminary olympic trials in Cleveland.
Anybody who knows ho was second and third.
Then after the olympic games, again in cleveland - august 21 - he won a race timed in 9,6. Salviati of Italy was third in 9,8, but who was second ?
Ifanybody has the information I'm also interested in who was second in the following 1936 races:
Ohio relays, Columbus May 2 ; 1. Owens 9,4w
Notre Dame, May 9 ; 1. Owens 9,5
Madison, May 16 ; 1. Owens 9,3w !!
Praha, August 11 ; 1. Owens 10,7
