Jesse Owens vs Andre De Grasse Video

Andre De Grasse vs. Jesse Owens

Canadian sprinting sensation Andre De Grasse runs a hundred meters in Jesse’s shoes.

Who’s the better runner when conditions are the same? 

Please note that the sand De Grasse ran on was sand, not compacted Dirt like Jesse Owens, which might have made a significant difference.


Pro De Grasse

  • You all are also leaving out the fact that De Grasse was running by himself. While Owens obviously had competition. That can make a HUGE difference in your time.
  • The Dirt wasn’t packed enough like in the time of Owens German Sand. It was more like a cricket pitch in the 1930s
  • The track in 1936 games was for sure much better. A cylinder machine compresses the sand and dust to get it properly for obtaining good scores. They even mix the soil with brick powder or some ashes to make it more resistant. Andre ran in very handicapped conditions.
  • Time Keeping was less accurate; just one timekeeper.
  • Owens had time to practice and prepare on the type of surface, whereas De Grasse didn’t. If De Grasse had more time to practice on that surface, for sure, he would have run a lot faster.
  • Owens wasn’t running with a whole stadium full of people.
  • De Grasse didn’t get time to break in the shoes.
  • DeGrasse wants in peak shape – probably only at 90-95% condition.


Pro Jesse Owens

  • Jesse Owens had no competition.
  • Athletes nowadays are way stronger and faster, and if you think not, then.
  • Jesse Owens was a Smoker
  • Jesse Owens’s diet wasn’t as good.
  • It was compacted dirt and sand, but it had rained recently, so the soil was slightly muddy. Owens was at an even bigger disadvantage than this track De Grasse ran on.
  • Owens had a lot more pressure on him in terms of the Politics of the times.
  • Owens times were from 80 years ago.


They should have at least ran this test 10 times to get a baseline.


Who would win in a race, Usain Bolt or Jesse Owens?

Usain Bolt, but not by the 0.4+ seconds that their personal records indicate. Owens ran on cinder tracks and wore slightly heavier shoes with a less stretch-shortening reflex than modern sprint shoes afford. But Bolt’s stride length (he takes only about 43 strides to complete some of his races compared to 46 or so for Owens) is incomparable and historic. This is coupled with a notable crural index (leg length divided by thigh length of over 1.0 – Owens and Bolt have this), which is beneficial for quick hip flexion/extension turnover.

Though neither athlete’s anthropometrics have been officially reported, guesstimates from photographs of each seem to indicate that Bolt had a better current index. With such stride length (Bolt is over 1.93 meters in height, Owen may be less than 1.83 meters) and turnover rate. And with a probable plethora of Type IIx muscle fiber motor neurons in his hips, thighs, and legs. Bolt is a true freak of nature. He showed that (at least on the world scene) at age 16. His domination over three Olympics is unheard of (in sprinting, at least) and will probably never be equaled.

Owens may have had a slight Type IIx motor neuronal advantage over Bolt. He was quicker and more powerful out of the blocks. And coupled with is a more compact form. He (given equal advantages) would probably beat Bolt in any sprint event up to about 70 meters. Owens displayed this type of power as a useful tool for the long jump, arguably his best event. His modern comparison would be Carl Lewis, who, non-coincidentally, also has held the long jump world record as did Owens. But Lewis ran 9.86 with the modern luxuries afforded Bolt, who has run 9.59.

In a race against Lewis and Owens. Bolt would trail for much of the race (and Owens would have a slight edge over Lewis since he was more compact and marginally more powerful). But Bolt’s ability to accelerate mid-race is astonishing. And his top-end velocity unequaled maybe in human history. These sorts of attributes allow for Bolt to stalk his opponents much of the 100-meter race. And accelerate while the others have already flat-lined. Which is the reason why Bolt is the greatest 200-meter runner of all time? Though he holds the world record in the 200, at 19.19, his disinterest in training probably precluded him from being the only man to break 19 seconds, a shame.

The man on the current track and field sprint scene reminiscent of Owens is Andre DeGrasse, The young Canadian sprinter who, at 1.76 meters, quick out of the blocks, has a running style and skill vaguely similar to Owens. DeGrasse has a 9.78 wind-aided best and an Olympic bronze medal in the 100 (and a silver medal in the 200).

All of the above is based on guesswork. But educated guesswork at that. Regardless, Owens is one of the top sprinters of all time and a top athlete. And the question posed here is a worthy and interesting one.
