Sprinter Ben Johnson set a new world record of 9.83 seconds for the 100-metre dash. The feat was later erased from the record books after Johnson tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, after running a 9.79 in the 100-metre final. Johnson was given no quarter in the court of public opinion, though more than 20 years later, his image has rebounded due to accusations of rampant doping among all sprinters during that time.
