1992 — The dream Team picks up its gold medal and Carl Lewis anchors a world-record 4X100 relay, winning his eighth gold medal in three Olympics. The u.s. basketball team beats Croatia 117-85, with the 32-point margin of victory the smallest of the games. In the 400, Mike Marsh, Leroy Burrell, Dennis Mitchell and Lewis set a world record of 37.40 seconds. Steve Lewis anchors another world-record as the americans won the 4X400 relay by nearly half the length of a football field.
