It is true that Hitler didn't shake Jesse Owens hand, but it is false to say it was an intentional snub of Owens. After the first day Hitler stopped congratulating ALL medallists. The Press took liberties with this fact, and though initially Owens got mileage from the story himself, he later said he wasn't snubbed by Hitler.
