Michael Johnson and Donovan Bailey beefed for pride, country, and the title of World’s Fastest Man

In the mid 90’s Michael Johnson and Donovan Bailey were the stars of track and field. American Michael Johnson dominated the 200 and 400, while Candian Donovan Bailey was king of the 100.
They both broke world records, collected gold medals, and were known as The World’s Fastest Man.

The World’s Fastest Man. Singular.

So… that couldn’t last. But it could, create a petty, nationalistic beef, that spilled into the press and gave birth to something rarely seen in track and field: A 150 meter race on a specialty made track that was 75 meters curve, 75 meters straightaway, with a million dollar prize on the line. In other words, a race to determine who really was The World’s Fastest Man.
