Olympic Affair - romance at '36 Olympics
(2013-03-01)
(kuvo) - It's the unlikely true story of an Olympic champion and a German movie star, told as historical fiction by Denver Post sportswriter Terry Frei. Olympic Affair - A Novel of Hitler's Siren and America's Hero is set as it happened, at the 1936 Berlin Games.

Simla, Colorado's decathlon gold medalist Glenn Morris and actress/filmmaker/ Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl hooked up, but history conspired against them, it seems. Frei joins First Take to tell the story that weaves together issues of race, sport, sex, gender, and world affairs. This page has the extended version of the full interview.
