Summary

There were only three rounds, for the first time at the Olympics since 1912. The world leader coming into Athina was a relative newcomer, Jeremy Wariner, who was trained by Clyde Hart, who had trained the redoubtable Michael Johnson. Wariner also attended [Baylor University], as had Johnson. The other Americans were Otis Harris and Derrick Brew, always to be considered challengers. But a top runner on the international circuit in 2004 was Grenada's Alleyne Francique. In the final, the Americans were in lanes 3-5, with Wariner in the middle. Harris led out for 200 metres, but the Americans were 1-2-3. At 300 metres Wariner and Harris were in a virtual dead-heat. But Wariner maintained more speed down the stretch and just over a metre, Harris in second, and Brew completing the American sweep. Françique placed fourth, never a factor for a medal after the first 200.
