Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 44, Millennia tells the Time Pilots about Jesse Owens. She knew him as an applesauce-loving kid, but, she informs us, once he was all grown-up, he went to the Berlin Games in 1936, where he gave lie to Adolph Hitler's claims that the Aryan race had power over all. Owens won four gold medals in track events, earning him the respect of his German rival-turned-friend Luz Long. Once the Time Pilots reach 1936, they learn that Major League baseball’s first night game was played in Cincinnati the previous year, Sonja Henie from Norway won her third straight Olympic figure skating championship, Helen Jacobs won the Wimbledon Tennis tournament in the United Kingdom, Little League baseball would be founded in Pennsylvania in 1939, and basketball was played as an Olympic sport for the first time.
