The final, in which 1987 silver medallist Ray Stewart found a Jamaican record of 9.96 good enough for only sixth place, was generally regard-ed as the greatest sprint race of all-time. Once again Carl Lewis was a key figure. Since retaining his Olympic title in 1988, he had been over-shadowed by another American, Leroy Burrell, who improved the world record to 9.90 at the 1991 US Championships.
In the second round, Lewis clocked a windy 9.80. Two other men broke 10 seconds on what proved to be a very fast surface. The semi-finals were won by Lewis and Burrell in 9.93 and 9.94 respectively – the fastest preliminaries ever.
The two principals were drawn together for the final, but the best start was made by the third American, Mitchell. At halfway Stewart (5.54) had edged in front with Lewis sixth. Burrell took over only to be passed at 90m by Lewis’s spectacular finish. The 30 year-old American won with new world record figures of 9.86. Burrell was also also inside the old record. Mitchell took the bronze and became the third-fastest man in history.
“He passed us like we were standing still,” said Burrell, who ran the second half of the race in 4.33 compared to Lewis’s 4.25.
There was some controversy after the race when it was eventually revealed that Mitchell’s reaction time at the start had been 0.09 – so quick that an automatic false start alert would have been sounded on the starter’s headphones. It transpired that the starter chose not to wear headphones. He was not obliged to do so, as IAAF rule 122.1 stated at the time: “The starter shall have the entire control of the competitors on their marks and shall be the sole judge of any fact connected with the start of the race.”
