Dust Jacket in Fine- Condition, with a 1/2 inch tear near tail of spine. *Collectible first printing with fine- dj. I clearly remember the 100 meter finals in the Seoul Olympics in 1988. Ben Johnson seemed to explode out of the blocks as if boosted by powerful hidden springs. He immediately opened a sizable gap on the field that he never relinquished. Carl Lewis was second, a good 5 feet behind. He was in line for a repeat gold medal in that event but had to wait a few days when Johnson was stripped of his medal because of steroid use. I had never seen anybody before or since with a such an amazingly fast reaction time to the gun. A very thorough behind-the-scenes story told by Johnson's and the Canadian Olympic team coach Charlie Francis. A fast read of a faster runner that takes off as you open the book!.
