Bryant Gumbel is your host for this 1988 release that runs for 45 minutes. From day one, the Men´s Track and Field event at the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul threw off sparks. The world´s finest track and field athletes had their sights set on gold, and nothing less would do. What followed was an unforgettable competition, blending raw power and speed with brilliant tactics: See Ben Johnson outduel Carl Lewis in the 100 meter race, only to be disqualified and lose his world record time of 9.79. Edwin Moses runs after his 3rd Olympic crown, but finally yields the 400 meter gold to U.S. hurdler Andre Phillips. Daley Thompson battles to be the first three-time winner in the Decathlon only to be snapped in the pole vault. The U.S. Men sweep the 400 meter race, while the Kenyans capture every race from 800 to 5,000 meters. Lastly, Italian Gelindo Bordin makes his thrilling last minute surge to capture the marathon event. The director was Andy Rosenberg, written by Sam Flood, with producer John Gonzalez.
