1 Ben Johnson
THE man who nearly brought a sport down. Johnson's 9.79 second "world record" in the 1988 Olympic 100 metres final in Seoul was a stunning moment, but the second-placed Carl Lewis's look of disbelief spoke volumes, and within 24 hours the truth had been revealed after he tested positive for stanozolol, an anabolic steroid. Johnson went into hiding and a sport went into mourning. Fifteen years after the race, it emerged that Lewis also had tested positive for drugs that season.
2 Mike Tyson
IN his 1997 rematch with Evander Holyfield in Las Vegas, Tyson, by then a man out of control, bit chunks out of both of Holyfield's ears, and part of one lobe was found on the ring later. The fight was stopped at the end of the third round and Tyson disqualified. He was fined $US3 million ($3.5m) and had his licence revoked but was allowed to return a year later.
