Why Carl Lewis believes he can help save track and field
In addition to coaching, Lewis paid to have Houston’s track resurfaced. But he still has a long way to go. Houston did not have a long jumper qualify for this year’s NCAA championships though it did finish second in the men’s 4x100. It was a very young team, though, and Lewis is looking well down the track where he so often passed opponents. He says he is developing athletes for the 2020 and 2024 Games.
