Jesse Owens Medal

FILE – In this Aug. 11, 1936 file photo, Olympic broad jump medalists salute during the medals ceremony at the Summer Olympics in Berlin. From left on podium are: bronze medalist Jajima of Japan, gold medalist Jesse Owens of the United States and silver medalist Lutz Long of Germany. Long and German Olympic officials give the Nazi salute, while Owens gives a traditional salute. It is “difficult” for IOC President Thomas Bach to accept that a gold medal won by Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympics will go on auction and possibly be bought by a private collector. The medal, one of four golds that Owens won at the Berlin Games in front of Adolf Hitler, is “a part of world heritage,” Bach said Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013. (AP Photo/File)
