Great to be joined by Michael Johnson, this week on “Tech of Sports.”
Michael Johnson is nothing short of a legend. Michael was a part of the USA Olympic team in Barcelona in 1992, Atlanta in 1996, and Sydney in 2000. He established a record of 13 Olympic and World Championship gold medals during his 11-year career.
Michael broke world records in the 200 meter, 400 meter and the 4 X 400-meter relay. He completed the historic 200/400-meter Olympic double in 1996, giving him the title of the “Fastest Man in the World.” He was clocked running 23mph en route to his historic 200-meter performance of 19.32 seconds.
