Jesse Owens and Luz Long Berlin Olympics, 1936 : The German silver medalist was the first to congratulate Jesse Owens and they took a lap of honour around the stadium together as the crowd rose to salute them both. "It took a lot of courage for him to befriend me in front of Hitler," said Owens later. "You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn't be a plating on the 24-carat friendship I felt for Lutz Long at that moment."
