Ben Johnson Story

                                                       Ben Johnson.jpg

In 1988 Ben Johnson was in the Seoul Olympics with Carl  lewis.  Ben and Carl were racing in the 100 metre final.  All eyes from the audience were only on Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis.

As soon as the gun went off Ben and Carl took off. Ben was in the lead at 50 meters and set a new world record.  But as soon as he crossed the finish line scientist took a sample of Ben to see if he had done anything wrong.

When Ben won the gold medal he felt guilty because he took drugs. Ben Johnson got his gold medal taken off him and got banned to race in the Olympics ever again.  And he was so upset, I even think he would of regretted that time he raced.
