Introduction

While Jesse Owens brought popularity and limelight to track and field as a major sport, it was Carl Lewis who made it a household game. The most spectacular track and field athlete of the 20th century, he was responsible for turning the sport from its amateur status to a professional one.

Lewis did not just earn himself a name and honor through the sport, but raised it from its sub-standard and incompetent level into a major international event. In a career spanning over two decades, he became a dominant sprinter and long jumper. He broke several records and created many, some of which till date remain unbeaten and unaltered. While his indoor long jump record stands undefeated till date since 1984, his winning streak of 65 consecutive victories in the sport is a feat that can hardly be matched.

Furthermore, he created world record in 100m, 200m and 4 x 100m relay race. In his career, he won 10 Olympic medals including 9 gold, and 10 World Championships medals, including 8 gold. Furthermore, he won two and three gold medals in Pan American and Goodwill Games respectively. To know more about his life, childhood and profile, browse through the biography.
