Not your ordinary story of an ordinary athlete.
Good onsite into his background.
Quite a bit of detail about his child hood.

  • The Dirtiest Race in History

  • Ben Johnson, Carl Lewis and the 1988 Olympic 100M Final

The 1988 Seoul Olympics played host to what has been described by some as the dirtiest race of all time, by others as the greatest. The final of the men's 100 metres at those Olympics is certainly the most infamous in the history of athletics, and more indelibly etched into the consciousness of the sport, the Olympics, and a global audience of millions, than any other athletics event before or since.
