Ben Johnson stripped of gold medalCanadian Ben Johnson was stripped of the gold medal for this world record-setting 100-meter win after he tested positive for steroids.

NBC said the gold would be awarded to Carl Lewis and IOC spokeswoman Michele Verdier said the medal could either be given to Lewis or the first place may be left vacant.

Heidebrecht acknowledged a Canadian contention of sabotage that the steroid might have been given to Johnson after the race.
