Links to video
The following links are at free online video services such as YouTube. There's no guarantee these videos will remain online.
- 1971 AAU Championships - The final 200 meters of the 3 Mile at the 1971 AAU Championships in Eugene, Oregon, in which Pre left his competition in the dust to win in 12:58.6. In the YouTube description, you can disregard the "freshman" and "5000 meter" parts, because this race was in Pre's sophomore year, and it was 3 miles not 5000 meters.
- 1975 LA Times Mile - The mile run at the Los Angeles Times Indoor meet.
- 1996 Olympic Games 200m - The 200 meter race at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, in which Michael Johnson sets the world record in a time of 19.32 seconds.
- 1999 World Championships 400m - The 400 meter race at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain, in which Michael Johnson sets the world record in a time of 43.18 seconds. It says 43.19 in the video, but I think it must have been later adjusted.
