Ben Johnson net worth: Ben Johnson is a former Olympic sprinter who has a net worth of $2 million dollars. Born in Falmouth, Jamaica, Ben Johnson relocated to Canada in 1976. He began training with Charlie Francis, a highly decorated Canadian sprinter at York University. He began to make a name for himself in the early 80s, winning two Silver Medals at the Brisbane Commonwealth Games. At the Olympics in Los Angeles in 1984, he again distinguished himself, winning Bronze Medals in the 100-meter relay, and the 100-meter sprint. By the mid-80s, he had established himself as Canada's faster runner, and had broken all Canadian sprint records. He won Gold at the World Indoor Championships in Paris and at the World Cup in Canberra in 1985, and Bronze in the 200-meter sprint at the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh in 1986. Sadly, he is most widely remembered for being stripped of his Gold Medal for the 100 meters in Rome in 1987 and his Gold Medal for his record breaking sprint at the Olympics in Seoul in 1988, after testing positive for steroid use. He also is famous for having a heated rivalry with fellow sprinter Carl Lewis.
