士 THE GOOD ONE

Much has been documented on this remarkable friendship between Carl Ludwig and Jesse Owens during the Olympic Games 1936 in Nazi-Germany. But here is yet one more post about the exemplary sportsmanship of both athletes. Ludwig was the dream model for German race ideology, but this was obviously not his. He preferred to held Jesse Owens, who won four times gold and set record after record. Ludwig knew that he helped for the higher cause, and will be remembered as a Samurai among all the other heroes of history.
