    Did Carl Lewis ever beat Michael Johnson in a 200m race?

    With a 50 % chance of being correct, I say no.

      Ahaha... Indeed. I haven't found any stat proving the contrary. In French language, we name it "un chat noir" (someone you will never beat when you used to dominate an event)

        Since the 200 was a secondary event for both (3rd for Lewis) they may have never raced ?

          Since Lewis was 6+ years older than Johnson, they weren't exactly "contemporaries." 6 years is a huge gap in sprint years.

          If nothing else, Johnson beat Lewis in the OT races of '92 and '96, when Carl was 31 and 35.

            It would have had to have been at the 88 Trials, yes? I think MJ was injured, so he 'ducked' a loss there?!

              Johnson ran only the 400 at the '88 OT and was 7th (and last) in his heat

                And his last loss at 400 until Paris 1997.

                I saw Johnson run a 400 in person twice. And it was those 2 races.

                    It was in Lausanne in July, 1993. Lewis 19.99, Johnson 20.06.

                          I didn't. I did what you did--looked in a specific place and found it.

                            X-Squeeze me, but I thought looking up the answer and posting it was strictly VERBOTEN in these kinds of trial pursuits!!!!

                              I didn't think it was verboten under these circumstances. If I violated the rulz, I apologize to all.
