Jesse Owens faced many challenges. Some of his challenges were being born a sharecropper, having many sicknesses as a child such as scarlet fever and asthma, and not being able to be in the same nice hotels his white teammates could . Some more of his challenges were not being able to get scholarships for running on the track team, and that when he came back to the U.S. the president didn’t make a party for him, and he didn’t even congratulate him. Those are some challenges that Jesse Owens faced.
