Brisbane:

Michael Johnson career ended in appropriate fashion, as he anchored the United States 1,600-metre relay team to the gold medal at the Goodwill Games. As he crossed the finish line, the 29,973 fans gave him a standing ovation and he was congratulated by his relay teammates, Derrick Brew, Leonard Byrd and Antonio Pettigrew. The medal added to Johnson's already glittering array that includes five Olympic gold medals and nine World Championships gold medals. Coincidentally, Johnson began his international career at the 1990 Goodwill Games in Seattle. (PTI)
