He won gold in the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter relay and long jump. It's unclear to which event this medal belonged. What is known is that Owens gave the medal to his friend, the black entertainer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, and is now being auctioned as part of the estate of Robinson's widow.
Proceeds will go to college tuition, and charity, according to SCP auctions.
This would be the most amazing Christmas present of all time.
