During the Olympic Games, Leni starts setting up camera’s and the famous carts on tracks that were first used during these games. While filming Olympia, she receives more and more criticism about filming everyone, of all nations and races, while the government wants her to focus on the German athletes. During filming, she defends with the argument that the funding is form the IOC, so she insists on making an objective view of the Olympic Games. Reluctantly, the Nazi officials agree to let her make the film she wants. During filming, she wants to improve the shots she made, so she asks some gold-winning athletes to do their thing again, now filming from a different angle or applying slow motion in editing. As seen in Race, Jesse Owens is one of these athletes.
