On September 24, 1988, the world held its breath as reigning champion Carl Lewis from America and chief rival Ben Johnson from Canada settled into their blocks for the final of the men's 100m at the Seoul Olympic Games. In the intervening years, six of the eight finalists have been linked with drug use and some maintain their innocence. This documentary re-examines the controversial race, interviewing the competitors, coaches and members of the Olympics movement to unravel years of suspicion.
