Editorial Reviews

The 100-meter men’s final at the 1988 Seoul Games was the fastest and perhaps most thrilling sprint in Olympic history. But within 48 hours, gold medalist Ben Johnson had tested positive for anabolic steroids, and scandal reigned. This one race still haunts the eight men who took part.

2012 Toronto International Film Festival Selection.

Some great footage on Ben Johnson at home too!
Susan Outlaw
This video is a must watch for anyone who remembers the rivalry of Ben vs Carl Lewis, calls themselves a track fan, or wants to know what athletes will do to win.

It's world history, physical education, and law all wrapped into one package.

I love documentaries! I watch stories that I have no knowledge about and ones that I feel that I know quite a bit about. In this case, I felt like I knew quite a bit about the race because of the two gentlemen in the forefront of the cover, Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis. After watching this film, it's obvious that I only knew a small amount in the entire picture.

It's important to know that this film goes back to a time where there was still some innocence in performance. Some may call this Summer Olympics the turning point in performance enhancing drugs and how the public views them.

The race itself is spectacular. Although the 9.79 mark has been broken a dozen or more times since 1988, the race in this film remains a great one, if not shocking. Track and field enthusiasts will gravitate to it automatically. Others that will gain something from this are conspiracy theorists and sports lovers. In my opinion, schools should also show it to their students. It's world history, physical education, and law all wrapped into one package.

It's also important to note that the "DVD-R" copy of this film is really good. Packaging is all top notch. There's nothing noticeable, in my opinion, when it comes to the transfer. There will always be nit pickers but most are in for an enjoyable experience. I watched this film more than 5 times on digital cable and another 5+times on DVD.

This is a super movie about PED and the 1988 100m race. Some great footage on Ben Johnson at home too!

This 30 for 30: 9.79* is in the top 10 best of all times for the series. This video is a must watch for anyone who remembers the rivalry of Ben vs Carl Lewis, calls themselves a track fan, or wants to know what athletes will do to win. This movie will have the viewers asking many questions. Everyone who watches this movie will ask "Who is Andre Action Jackson?" This man and Carl's coach had a plan. Did the plan get carried out? You will look at Carl Lewis in a manner that you have NEVER looked at him before. What would Carl do to win? Watch the movie and I'm sure you won't be able to answer that question. The Seoul 1988 Olympic 100 should be renamed the Seoul 1988 Olympic 100: The few that got away. Several of the men in this race would later get caught for using enhancing drugs. When did they start using the drugs? 1985? 1986? or 1988?

I knew about this but didn't know the extent of the story. Another great documentary by ESPN Film 30 for 30.
