Why not Carl Lewis? He had failed tests. He never admitted, just told on the winner. What makes these testing failures so shocking?

Brent Moore's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:10 PM

The race between Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis in the 1988 Olympics has been call the "Dirtiest Race in History" by many because of the rampant use of banned substance by its competitors. The clash between personal and professional ethics in the pursuit of winning a sports championship often results in competitors cheating with performance enhancing drugs in an attempt to gain an edge.
