Danville is an unincorporated community in Morgan County, Alabama in the United States, and is included in the Decatur Metropolitan Area and the larger Huntsville-Decatur Combined Statistical Area. A noteworthy Danville native, David Donald Albritton became the first African-American to hold the World High Jump record at 6'9-3/4" set at the Olympic Trials on Randall's Island in the East River between Queens and Manhattan. His jump on July 11, 1936 was 6-3/4" above his height of 6'3". Albritton won the silver medal in high jump at the 1936 Olympics bested by co-world record holder Cornelius Johnson. Dave Albritton became the first Alabama native to win an Olympic medal in Track and Field competition. At the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin, Germany high jump competition began and ended on August 2, 1936. Five minutes before Albritton, Johnson, and Thurber were to receive their medals, Adolph Hitler and his entourage left the stadium. IOC President Baillet-Latour approached Hitler with the choice of meeting all medal winners or none. He chose the latter. The myth that he snubbed James Cleveland (Jesse) Owens, who won his first medal on August 3, 1936, is incorrect. Hitler actually snubbed Albritton, Johnson, and Thurber who swept the event for the United State. Dave Albritton met his best friend, Jesse Owens, at Fairmount Junior High School in Cleveland, Ohio. They both attended East Technical High School and won the Ohio State Track and Field Championship in 1932 and 1933. Coach Larry Snyder of Ohio State University recruited the pair to compete on the Buckeye Track Team. Both outstanding athletes won medals at the XI Olympiad. Film footage of Dave Albritton jumping at the Olympics can be seen on the internet in the film Olympia-part one made by innovative German film director Leni Riefenstahl.
