Best Answer

Michael Johnson

was the best ever still keeping the 200m and 400m records.

he broke the 100m record he ran 10.12 running at 40km/h

then 200m with a 19.32

400m 43.49

his 200m and 400m is still standing but whe will see if Usain Bolt can brake the 200m as well and be the fastest 200m sprinter ---- Michael Johnson never held the 100 meter world record even though the split in his world record 200 meter run would have been a world record in the 100. The last athlete to hold the 100 meter and 200 meter world record was Florence Griffith-Joyner of the United States who currently holds the women's 100 meter and 200 meter world records. She ran a world record 21.34 in the 200 at the 1988 Games in Seoul and a world record 10.49 in the 100 at the 1988 US Olympic trials on July 16, 1988. Michael Johnson never held the 100 meter world record even though the split in his world record 200 meter run would have been a world record in the 100. At the 2008 Games in Beijing, Usain Bolt ran a 9.69 in the 100 and a 19.30 in the 200, breaking both men's world records. Currently, both he and Griffith-Joyner hold the world record in the 100 and 200. ---------------------------------------------- Question: Who was the last man to hold both the 100m and 200m world records at the same time? Answer: It was Ray Norton of the United States. On April 18, 1959 he tied the world record of 10.1 in the 100m in San Jose, California, USA. Then on April 30, 1960 he tied the world record of 20.6 in the 200m in Philadelphia, United States. Therefore on April 30, 1960 he held world records in both the 100m and 200m. Since then no man has held the world records in the 100m and 200m at the same time, until Usain Bolt in 2008. Almost 50 years later! Bolt set world records of 9.69 in the 100m and 19.30 in the 200m at the Olympic Games in Beijing China in August of 2008. -Asad Raza
