Johnson Jeered in Rio

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Double Olympic gold medallist Michael Johnson was jeered before and after winning the 200 meters in 20.29 seconds at the Rio de Janeiro athletics grand prix.


Johnson's popularity took a huge dip in Brazil after media reports alleged he had pushed away a young fan who had wanted to pose alongside him for a photograph at his hotel Friday.
