combination never achieved by a man in the Olympics Johnson overcame a mistake at the start of the 400 when he didnt blast off as quickly as he had planned What if the same thing happens in the 200 If I dont get out in the Johnson said the race is over This is a different race and a different mindset Ive got to get meaner The 400 is a strategic race The 200 is a tech nical race In the 400 strategy
