Ohio:TheInside Story

Ohio’s OlympicHistory

Ohio has along and illustrious history ofinvolvement with the Olympic

Games.Itwas the home, for instance, ofthe man many consider to be the

greatest Olympian of all —track and field’s Jesse Owens.

The “Buckeye Bullet” competed for The Ohio State University after

completing hishighschool career at Cleveland East Tech.AtOSU,Owens’

most notable achievement was setting or tying four world records in less

than an hour during the 1935 Big Tenchampionships.

Thatafternoon helped setthe stage forthe 1936 Olympics in Berlin,

where Owens won four gold medals under the cloud of Nazi Germany. His

victories inthe 100- and 200-meter dashes, the long jump and the 4x100meter

relay were seen as apublic humiliation of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s


In the years followingOwens’triumph in Germany, anumber of Ohio

trackand fieldathletes built upon hislegacy.Another Clevelander,Harrison

Dillard, won the 100 meters in 1948 in London, then followed that with a

goldinthe 110-meter hurdles four yearslater in Helsinki, Finland.Heisstill

the only maleOlympian to winboth events. Dayton’sEdwin Mosesbrought

home Olympic gold in1976 and 1984 with triumphs in the 400-meter

hurdles.Off the track, archer Darrell Pace of Cincinnati won golds in 1976

and 1984.Infact, he and Moses are the only two Americans to win events

in each ofthose Olympiads.Because ofthe state’s lack ofmountains and

consistent snowfall, Ohioans haven’t done as well in the Winter Olympics.

In 2002, though, Granville’s Lea Ann Parsley returned from Salt Lake City

with asilver medal in skeleton, asledding sport comparable to luge, that

features speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. Afine overall athlete, Parsley

happened upon skeleton while doing research online. Three years before

winning her medal, she gave the sport a shot … and caught

on quickly. Miami County also has arecent Olympic athlete. InFebruary

2006, Piqua native Kristin King helped the U.S. Women's Hockey team

defeat Finland and earn asilver medal during the Winter Games in

Torino, Italy. Kristin is a1998 graduate of Piqua High School.
