Johnson was troubled by injury in 2000 and it was much to his credit that he made the final at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia just missing out on adding to his medal collection by finishing fourth.
2003 in the Stade de France, saw Johnson win his fourth IAAF World Championships in Athletics 110 m hurdles title when he beat Terrence Trammell into second to overtake the three world championship gold medals that Greg Foster had won at the event.
At the 2004 Summer Olympics he tripped over a hurdle in the 2nd preliminary round and was unable to finish the race and reach the final. He was however ranked world's number 1 throughout 2004's season.
His personal best is 12.92 seconds, only 0.01 seconds short of the then-world record and 0.05 short of the current record. Johnson has legally finished 11 races in less than 13 seconds, more than anyone else so far.
