Overview by IAAF   Gottlieb Daimler Stadion 
The disappointments in this event from 1991 were quickly forgotten when a United States squad which included history’s three fastest men obliterated the world record. Valmon (44.5) had built up a 10m lead after the first exchange, and sub-44 splits by Watts and Reynolds quadrupled this. The baton was then passed to Johnson, who appeared to run a conservative first 200m before letting rip in the last half lap. A hurried comparison of the photo-cell time at the “bell” and the finishing time of 2:54.29 revealed that Johnson had run quicker than 43 seconds. His time was confirmed as 42.94. That figure was taken from photo-finish pictures taken at the start and finish of Johnson’s leg supplied by Seiko. Using different methods, the DLV Biomechanics Report from Stuttgart 1993 variously showed timings of 42.91 and 42.92. Individual bronze medallist Kitur clocked the fastest non-US split of the race to win silver for Kenya, while 1987 individual champion Schönlebe held on to win a bronze for Germany. Defending Champions Britain were eliminated in the heats. The winning mark stood as a world record until a United States team clocked 2:54.20 at the 1998 Goodwill Games. In 2008 the later mark was cancelled due to the involvement of Antonio Pettigrew who admitted to doping violations between 1997 and 2003. An unsanctioned Pettigrew also contributed to the US victory in Stuttgart with his second leg run in the heats.
 These are the official results of the Men's 4x400 metres event at the 1993 IAAF World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. There were a total number of eighteen participating nations, with three qualifying heats and the final held on Sunday 1993-08-22.
