Chat with Michael Johnson
The world record-holding Johnson is up for election as a member of the 2009 class for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame presented by Allstate. Fans have a chance to vote for the nominees at TeamUSA.org. The class will be announced in July and the ceremony will be held on August 12 in Chicago.
Johnson is perhaps best known for his 200-meter and 400-meter double gold at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. He won both races for the first time in Olympic history. He set world records in both races, with his 400 time still a current record. The 200 time was broken by Usain Bolt at the 2008 Games in Beijing. Johnson enjoyed watching Bolt run his races during the Games.
Since his retirement from racing, Johnson has moved on to training, opening the Michael Johnson Performance Center in Dallas, for both professional and youth athletes. Five 2009 NFL first round picks trained at the facility.
