Butch Reynold's WR 400 vs. Michael Johnson's

Does anyone know which runner ran the faster final 100 meters when they set their respective WR 400 meter dashes between Michael Johnson and Butch Reynolds?

From severl analysis' of both races.
Butch Reynolds final 100m was run in 11.1s, which is equal fastest ever, alongside Tommie Smith's 11.1s final 100m of his then-WR of 44.5s in 1967 I believe.

From the Run-Dwon Forums.
Below is Pierrejean's thoughts and comments of analysis of this race amongst others.

'Scientifical Analysis made by the Spanish group did time analysis for 100m, 200m and 400m in Sevilla WCH'99, but only the 100m analysis are reliable, the 200 and 400m split times are actually 0.1s to 0.2s too slow, from what PJ noticed from my TV footage and slow motion films (50HZ or much more) by Jacques Piasenta.
They give 11.10s + 10.12s + 10.44s + 11.52s (200m,21.22s & 300m,31.66s)
He found from the very good and clear footage of the race
11.12s + 10.21s + 10.48s + 11.37s (200m,21.33s & 300m,31.81s)

There was a problem with the speed of the tape, so actually, i find from ones i've receievd since i've posted this message on run-down that Sevilla splits by Spanish group ARE reliable. Sorry for the confusion.

Smith's last 100 was 11.3. Splits taken by T&FN staff on-site at the race. I wasn't here yet, but believe timers were actually stationed at each of the 110y points. I know of no other credible splits.
