Film information

Story: Documentary about the controversial 100m race at the Seoul Olympic Games in 1988 and its effect on the world of sport. The race saw long-standing rival sprinters Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis take to the track once again. Although it was Johnson who won the gold medal and broke a new world record at the time, only a matter of hours later his title was taken from him when he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Becoming a significant turning point in the world of sport, the race brought the use of such drugs into the public domain and ushered in new legislation for athletes wishing to compete at professional and amateur levels. Film-maker Daniel Gordon conducts exclusive interviews with the competitors and attempts to dig deeper into the story while uncovering evidence of some potential foul play.
