Michael Johnson to go into Hall of Fame

AFP , INDIANAPOLIS

Two-time Olympic 400m champion Michael Johnson and three-time Olympic champion Jackie Joyner-Kersee led a group of 10 inductees announced on Monday for the US Athletics Hall of Fame.

Olympic marathon winner Joan Benoit Samuelson, triple jumper Michael Conley, long-retired standouts Jack Davis, Otis Davis, John Pennel and Gerry Lindgren plus coach Stan Huntsman and administrator Evie Dennis complete the lineup.

All will be inducted on Dec. 3 at Beaverton, Oregon.

Johnson owns world records at 200m and 400m. At the 1996 Atlanta Games, he became the first man to win both at the same Olympics. A win at the 2000 Sydney Games made him the only man to repeat as the Olympic 400m champion.
