What Is Michael Johnson’s Net Worth?

Michael Johnson was once known as "superman", setting several world records and winning eight gold medals throughout his career. So how much is he worth these days?

Johnson remains the only man ever to win both the 200m and 400m at the same Olympics, a goal he achieved at the 1996 games in Atlanta. It's because of his versatility that he's considered, even today, one of the best sprinters in the history of track and field.

Johnson retired in 2001, but he remains an avid spectator of the sport he once ruled. He's watching the young hopefuls at the Tokyo games closely this year and appears to be doing some guest appearances on various news platforms, providing his expert analysis of the events.

Michael Johnson was indeed the "fastest man alive" during his glory days, but other sprinters have taken that title since.

Over the span of his career, Johnson won 12 gold medals in total, including four Olympic gold medals and eight World Championships gold medals. He held world records for the 200m, 400m and men's indoor 400m, as well as setting the world's best time for the 300m.

Team USA's Trayvon Bromell was named the "fastest man in the world" after winning the men's 100m opening round at the Tokyo games in July 2021.

Michael Johnson is estimated to be worth around $12 million (£8.6 million) in 2021.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, it's reported that Johnson has got quite the real estate collection. In 2017, his home in San Rafael, California, was registered for $3.2 million (£2.3 million) and he reportedly still lives there today.

Then there's his second home in Marin County in the San Francisco Bay area which is said to be worth $1.2 million (£860,000).

Johnson is very active on social media. He's got nearly 33,000 followers on Instagram (@mjgold4) and 116,000 followers on Twitter (@MJGold).

Team USA athletes competing at Tokyo 2020 could earn upto £26,000 if they win a gold medal, £16,000 for a silver medal and £10,800 for a bronze medal. But not all athletes are paid for winning medals at the Olympics.
