Johnson – “I could have run under 18 seconds”

American sprint legend Michael Johnson says he could have run under 18-second in the 200m dash if he had more competition under his belt and a perfect day.

American sprint legend Michael Johnson says he could have run under 18-second in the 200m dash if he had more competition under his belt and a perfect day.

“I could have run under 18 seconds (for the 200m),” Johnson was quoted as saying while answering question on BBC Sports.

“I wouldn’t have needed more training, but I would have needed more competition. I ran 18.5 secs on a 4×200m relay as a collegiate athlete, and the race when I ran 19.32 secs was not the perfect race.

“There were a couple of things I could have improved on – I stumbled out of the blocks and that cost me time, and I strained my left hamstring at the end which cost me time.

“Correcting those two would maybe get me a tenth of a second total, so I would have needed more on top.”
