Overview by IAAF    1996_olympic_stadium.jpg
Jackson (13.36) and Vander-Kuyp (13.32w) were the fastest in round 1. Crear ran the fastest ever quarter-final with 13.14. Two-time finalist Jarrett had a desperate time, falling after cramping and accidentally hindering Germany’s Eric Kaiser, which resulted in the Briton’s disqualification. Reigning champion McKoy, now running for Austria, went out with 13.64 in a heat won by Jackson in 13.33, while race favourite Johnson won the final heat in 13.27. Johnson returned the next day to win the first semi-final in 13.10, despite a sluggish reaction time (0.194), with Jackson (13.17) and Valle (13.18) impressive behind him. In the other semi, 13.26 was necessary to make the final, with Schwarthoff very impressive in running 13.13, while Crear duplicated Johnson’s reaction time and struggled to run 13.22 behind Swift (13.21). Crear matched Johnson in the final until the fourth hurdle, when the US Trials winner (in a US record 12.92) drew clear to win in 12.95. Crear finished a metre clear of Schwarthoff, Jackson and Valle.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The 1995 World Champion was Allen Johnson (USA), while the 1993 World Championships gold medalist was 1988 Olympic silver medalist, Colin Jackson (GBR). Jackson had also won the European and Commonwealth titles in 1990 and 1994. The two were considered co-favorites in Atlanta. But the final was not close. Johnson pulled clear at the fourth hurdle and won easily over American Mark Crear, while Jackson finished out of the medals in fourth place.
