Ben Johnson's 1986 Goodwill Games 100m

as per requested, here is the race in WMV format. Again, it’s a very old tape, so the quality has diminished somewhat.

here is the file:


is there any chance you post up an animated gif as you did with Ben’s 1986 Zurich race? Can’t seem to download those WNV files.

Much appreciated.

I’ll look for the original AVI file… that’s how I make animated GIFs with Premiere, and it allows cropping to keep the file size trimmed to under 1MB.

Otherwise, XP Movie Maker 2.0 (freeware) works great.


I dont have a clue what you are talking about but I appreciate the end result…I think :smiley:

I love the commentary …

“Ben Johnson, Carl Lewis … oh … oh … Ben is way out”

here’s the animated GIF… sorry for the quality, but it’s the best I can do!

This was the race where Ben’s blocks wouldn’t stick in the track and he couldn’t really drive out hard.
