Sets the 800m WR and then comes back with a gold in his "specialty" event, the 400.
Watch Lane 5 in the 800 and Lane 2 in the 400. The tall guy with the near-'Fro hair.
Look at the length of his stride. Wow.
In my opinion this is probably the greatest double gold of all-time because to win both a middle-distance event and a sprint is the toughest task to accomplish. No one had done it before and no one has done it since.
And, a great 800 race between Juantorena and Mike Boit. Then, watch first the replay of the original 400 final and then the re-run of the 400 where you get a great view of the incredible length of Juantorena's stride.

That second race (where El Cabllo and Boit ran neck and neck) was amazing. I think El C. could have run 1:42 that day with a quicker opening lap and Boit pressing him.
