Sadly, this stadium no longer exists. Well, it does, but in the form of a baseball stadium for the Atlanta Braves.
The 1996 Atlanta Grand Prix was held two months prior to the Summer Olympics. So this race was “warm up” to the USATF Olympic Trials (the race where Michael Johnson won in Lane 8)
In this race, Michael Johnson runs a 19.83 with Mike Marsh very close in 2nd with a respectable 19.88. And let’s not forget Kevin Little who placed 4th in 20.29!
After the race, a lot of readers were questioning his attempt of the 200/400 double, even though he accomplished the feat at the 1995 World Championships
The worst part of the video is The Annoying Carol Lewis doing the commentary.
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.
