2. Jim Thorpe?

I think Jesse Owens is correct. Thorpe came to mind for me as well, but I recall he was born pre-1900 and probably aged out by 1935.

Two things made it a no-brainer.

* 1935 – it was just one year later that Owens dominated the Berlin Olympics.

* The long jump record standing for 25 years.

For some reason, I associated Jesse Owens with the 1940’s and the only other athlete that came to mind was Jim Thorpe.
