Michael Johnson chooses Technogym for his MJP training centre

In great shape. Fresh, despite the long journey that brought him to Cesena. Serious and impassive, with clear ideas, determined as when he dominated the 200 and 400 mt. races - Michael Johnson, the legendary sprinter, multiple Olympic and world champion in athletics, came to visit the Technogym Village in Cesena to discover the new features and characteristics of Technogym equipment for sports performance. Michael is today president of Michael Johnson Performance, the world leader in seasonal and off-season training programs, biomechanical analysis and injury prevention programs for athletes to maintain higher levels of athletic performance.

Michael Johnson's unique career

I work hard to improve myself as a person - as a father, as a husband, as a manager. I'm always on that mission. MICHAEL JOHNSON

Michael Johnson is one of the most important figures in athletics in the 90s. A champion with a unique, statuesque running style, with an incredibly straight back, an impassive face, a very high running rate, Johnson's records have been unbeaten for a decade.
Determination is a basic element in Johnson's life, first as an athlete and then as an entrepreneur. As when he set himself, once he became aware of his incredible athletic qualities, to beat records that date back to the Mennea era, now two decades before. He managed to do so, so much so that in the 90s he was defined the fastest man in the world, a bit like the way it happened to the son of the wind Carl Lewis in the previous decade.
In the 200m and 400m, he is still the only athlete who has managed to defend gold in the 400m for two consecutive editions of the Olympics. As a professional, he has dominated the world's tracks for a decade, as certified by his page on the IAAF website, almost only victories in all major world competitions in the 200, 400 and 4x400 relay. He will end his career in 2000, still winning, but will continue to be successful in the activities he has carried out since his retirement.

Michael Johnson's clean career

The Texan athlete has always practiced himself in being clean for sport, dissociating himself with striking gestures from the doping practices, which were extremely widespread in the 90s. In 2008, for example, he returned to the IOC in the 4x400 relay medal won at the Sydney 2000 Olympics because two of his relay teammates had confessed to being doped. Following the confession of his relay partner, Johnson said he wanted to return the medal, stating that the gold did not belong to him. A reflection of his ethical nature.
The determination of Michael Johnson is fundamental not only in moments of glory but also in those of suffering when the adversities of life have risked having the upper hand over the body. Recently Michael suffered a small stroke, fortunately without permanent consequences. Thanks to the timeliness with which he was treated, worse consequences were avoided. Once he got out of bed, the disease prevented him from moving his body part smoothly once he got back on his feet. As shown by the video of the first and then posted on his Twitter profile, thanks to his determination and constant training in a few months he was able to get back in perfect shape, as demonstrated by the excellent low skip at the Speed Ladder.
