Overview by IAAF  1936_olympic_stadium.jpg
Having been a comfortable winner of both the US Trials 200m and the Olympic 100m, Owens was a solid favourite. Winning his first two preliminaries in an Olympic record 21.1 did nothing to dispel that view. Mack Robinson equalled Owens’s new record in his semi, with Owens an easy winner of the other race in 21.3. Owens flew around the bend in the final, opening up a 2m lead on the field by halfway, which he smoothly doubled by the finish in 20.7, easily the best 200m seen in major competition at that time. In better conditions after the Games, Robinson ran 20.8, which showed the exceptional quality of Owens’s run.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The favorite was American Jesse Owens who had already won the 100 and long jump gold medals. He won the final easily in 20.7, with four metres over American Mack Robinson. Though the IAAF did not yet recognize 200 metre records set on a turn, this was easily the fastest time ever run. Mack Robinson was the brother of Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier in 20th century major league baseball.
