ATHLETICS: Ben Johnson to lead anti-doping campaign
2013-09-02 08:21:38 | (0 Comments)
Former Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson is to lead a new anti-drugs campaign set to launch this month.
The disgraced sprinter will be promoting an anti-doping campaign called Pure Sport.
Johnson, who was stripped of his 1988 Olympic Games gold medal and world record in the 100 metres after testing positive for steroids, is hoping to convince young athletes to stay away from drugs in sports.
The highlight of the campaign will be the unfolding of a giant signed petition in the Olympic Stadium in Seoul on September 24, the 25th anniversary of the race where Johnson beat American Carl Lewis.
