Overview by IAAF 1988_olympic_stadium.jpg 
DeLoach, winner of the US Trials, and Lewis were the favourites, and the semi-finals confirmed this view. Lewis won the first in 20.23 from Robson da Silva (20.28), while DeLoach zipped to a 20.06 nearly 3m clear of Christie. By the time of the final Lewis had run four rounds of the 100m and taken a full series of jumps in defence of his long jump crown. Nevertheless, the defending champion made the running in the final, blasting out from the gun, and led DeLoach by 30cm off the bend, with da Silva and Christie together a metre back. DeLoach caught Lewis at 150m, and edged away in the last 25m to win by half a metre from his friend and training partner. The battle for third was won by da Silva who outlasted Christie in the final stages.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Defending champion Carl Lewis was back and was again hoping to win four gold medals, as he had in 1984. But in the US Olympic Trials he was beaten for the first time in two years by Joe DeLoach. They won the two semi-finals in Seoul to set up the final. Nobody else was really considered for the gold medal, and that was how the race turned out. Lewis ran solidly, recording 19.79, but was edged out by DeLoach, who finished in 19.75, equaling Lewis's American record and the second fastest time ever at that point.
