Front Jacket Excerpt:
"On September 24, 1988, in Seoul, South Korea, Canadian sprint coach
Charlie Francis reached his life's highest moment. In the Olympic 100 meter
dash, his prize pupil Ben Johnson-whom Francis had discoved as a shy, frail
adolescent eleven years earlier-leaped out of the starting blocks and blew
away a brilliant group of sprinters that included Carl Lewis. But two days
later, in a shocking announcement, the International Olympic Committee
stripped Johnson of his gold medal because he tested positive for a banned
anabolic steroid. Was Ben Johnson the exception?"
