5. Adolf Hitler's Claim of Supremacy
Who: Hitler & the Nazis
Olympics: Berlin 1936
This was a huge victory for Jesse Owens and equality, but it doubles as a L for Hitler and the Nazis. Faced with racism from the host country, Owens claimed four gold medals and transcended sports with the cultural impact of his achievements. Hitler, meanwhile, had to live with the embarrassment of being shown up on his home turf by someone he viewed as inferior. All that was needed was a look at the scoreboard to show who came out on top.
