I wasn’t too worried about all this.

What was Jesse Owens not so worried about in his autobiographical writing “My greatest Olympic Prize”? Why?

Jesse Owens was not worried about the Aryan superiority theory.

Jesse had trained, sweated and disciplined himself in the six years. He was sure that he would take one or two of those gold medals home. Everyone even expected him to win an year before he had set the world record of 26 feet 8-1/4 inches.

Jesse was not so worried about Hitler’s ‘master race’ theory and the all-time high nationalistic feelings in the German camp.
He wasn’t worried because he was confident to win the board jump, as he had “trained, sweated and disciplined” himself for six years with the games in mind.
