Biography

Dennis Mitchell placed fourth in the 100 at the 1988 Olympics and missed a probable gold medal in the 4x100 relay because the American team was disqualified in the heats, after an out-of-zone pass between Calvin Smith and Lee McNeill. In 1989 Mitchell won the NCAA Championships in the 200 metres, representing the University of Florida. In 1991, just a month before the World Championships, Mitchell ran on his first world record in the 4x100, with 37.67 at Zürich. At the World Championships Mitchell was again a member of American 4x100 m relay team that set a world record of 37.50 in the final. In addition, Michell won a bronze in the 100. In 1992 Mitchell won his first US National Championships title in the 100, which he repeated in 1994 and 1996. At the Barcelona Olympics Mitchell ran his third world record in the 4x100 relay, with 37.40, and again won bronze in the 100. At the 1993 World Championships Mitchell won his third bronze in major international competition in the 100 metres and his third gold in the sprint relay with another world record, as the American team equaled their own world record of 37.40. Mitchell won gold in the 100 at the 1994 Goodwill Games. At the 1996 Summer Olympics Mitchell was fourth in the 100 and won silver as a member of the American 4x100 relay team. In 1998 Mitchell was banned by the IAAF for two years after a test showed high levels of testosterone and he made his final international appearance at the 2001 World Championships, where he initially won a gold medal in the 4x100 relay, but the team was later disqualified because of BALCO scandal involvement by a teammate.

Personal Best: 100 – 9.91 (1991).
