Jesse Owens Track and Field

The Jesse Owens Track and Field is home to the Cal State L.A. soccer, cross country, and track and field teams. The track, part of the University's 5,000-seat stadium, was named in honor of the American track and field star Jesse Owens, who gained international recognition when he became the first American to win four Olympic gold medals in track and field.
