Ben Johnson

The Olympic committee sent Canadian runner Ben Johnson home from the Seoul games in 1988 after traces of an anabolic steroid was detected in a testing of his urine. Johnson was stripped of a gold medal he won in the 100m just days before. In January 1993 he tested positive again for steroids at an indoor track meeting in Montreal, which led to him being banned for life. (Photo: Tony Duffy/Getty Images)
