Overview by IAAF    1984_olympic_stadium.jpg
Carl Lewis was the hot favourite; he had won the inaugural world title in 1983 and destroyed the opposition in the US Trials (10.06 into a 2.2 wind). Jamaica’s Ray Stewart was the fastest heat winner with 10.24, but Lewis laid his cards on the table with 10.04 in the second round. Lewis was again the fastest semi-finalist (10.14), with Stewart (10.26) edging Graddy in the other heat. Graddy and Ben Johnson started fastest in the final, Graddy’s pickup taking him 30cm clear of Johnson at halfway, with Lewis a metre back. Lewis was still behind at 80m, but his finish was irresistible, as he took nearly 3m out of the field in the last 20 – with a huge grin on his face.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
In 1983 there was finally a World Championship in athletics. At Helsinki, the Americans had swept the medals with Carl Lewis winning gold and Calvin Smith silver, although Smith won the 200. Lewis was an enormous talent who had made the 1980 Olympic team in the long jump, and in Los Angeles he made plans to duplicate Jesse Owens’ feat of winning four gold medals in the sprints, long jump, and sprint relay. With the Olympics in the United States, the media interest in this attempt was enormous, but Lewis was actually a solid favorite in all three individual events, and only a dropped baton or bad pass could hamper him in the relay. The 100 was his first event, and he came thru the rounds easily to the final on 4 August. There he faced his teammates, Sam Graddy and Ron Brown, and the Canadian, Ben Johnson. But Lewis was unstoppable, winning the race by 0.20 seconds, the easiest victory since Bob Hayes in 1964. The next day, Lewis competed in the long jump qualifying and he would eventually repeat Owens’ achievement by winning all four gold medals.
