Concerning the professional career of Michael Johnson, his first great achievement was winning the 200 meters in the World Championship in 1991, held in Tokyo. In 1992 during the Olympic Games in Barcelona, he won his first Olympic gold medal in the 4 x 400 m, relay setting the world record of 2.55.74 with his colleagues. He won another two gold medals at the World Championships in 1993 in Stuttgar.t in the 400m and in the 4 x 400 m relay, beating once again the world record in 2:54.29. During the next World Cup, held in Gothenburg in 1995, Johnson won two more gold medals (200 m and 400 m), and in 1996, he proved to be one of the best sprinters in the history, winning two Olympic gold medals in Atlanta, the 400m with a time of 43.49 sec., and in the 200 meters, setting a world record of 19.32 seconds. In 1997, he won his seventh gold medal of the world championships and the third at the distance of 400 m.

Due to an injury he could not start in the 200 m in Seville in 1999. He raced in and won the 400 meters, and in the 4 x 400 m relay, but disqualification ensued, and as a result he won just the eighth gold medal of the World Championships. In 2000, Michael established the current world record of 30.85 sec for the unusual distance of 300m in South Africa. In 2000, during the USA Championships, he won the 400 m., but because of injury did not finish the 200 meters, so his last major achievement in the sports arena was winning an Olympic gold medal at the XXVII Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 in the 400 m. Afterwards, he announced the completion of a career during which he won a total of eight gold medals at the world championships and four Olympic gold medals.

After the end of his active career, Michael Johnson published his autobiographical book “Slaying the Dragon: How to Turn Your Small Steps to Great Feats”. Currently, he works as an assistant and developer of young athletes in the football club Arsenal.
