The 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul featured the race of the century that soon after became the most controversial moment in Olympics history. In that race, Canada’s underdog Ben Johnson blew past the competition to set an incredible 100 meter world record of 9.79 seconds before having all of the Olympic glory stripped away from him just three days later due to a failed drug test.
To this day, there is a great deal of mystery surrounding the 1988 100 race, which also included American Olympic legend Carl Lewis. ESPN 30 for 30’s ‘9.79’ will take a close look at the 1988 Games in Seoul, featuring interviews from all eight athletes who competed in the highly-controversial 100 meter race.

‘9.79’ was directed by award-winning producer/director Daniel Gordon, who grew up as a big fan of professional sports, primarily soccer. In the 30 for 30 film, ‘9.79’ Gordon brings us interviews from Ben Johnson, Carl Lewis and the other six men from the 100m final at the Seoul Games as all of them tell their story from the 1988 race.
