Ben Johnson (1988)


Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson is best known for setting consecutive world records in the 100-meter sprint during the 1987 World Championships in Athletics, and again in the 1988 Olympic Games. The 1988 Olympic Games earned him one gold and two bronze medals. Johnson lost his Olympic title and both world records when he tested positive for steroids. Although he admitted to doping when he ran his world-record race in 1987, he claimed it was necessary to stay on par with other top athletes, who were also using drugs.

NexT: Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan (1994)
