It looked as if the title would stay in Europe when Black led into the straight after passing 300m in 32.06. The two-time European Champion continued to run strongly and only the American duo of Everett and Pettigrew could stay in touch. As the Briton struggled in the last 15m, Pettigrew, the shorter of the Americans, went ahead to win by just 0.05. Black just managed to hold off the fast-finishing Everett for the silver.
“When we came off the turn I said ‘Hey, it’s time to do what I was supposed to do’,” reflected Pettigrew. “I did that and I won the race, and I thank God for that.”
There is an appalling postscript to this exciting race, because on August 10, 2010 Pettigrew was was found dead in the back seat of his car, having committed suicide after having taken an overdose of medication. Two years earlier he had admitted taking EPO between 1997 and 2003 and was stripped of three world and one Olympic relay gold medal won in that period.
