Carl_Lewis’s Biography

Son of American polo player William Lewis and vallista mother (Evelyn), aged 15, Lewis began competing in long jump. With his high sprint speed, he also performed well in speed events.

In 1980, at just 19, Carl was selected for the US Olympic athletics team, but his country’s boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics delayed Lewis’s debut.

In the following years, Lewis made the best marks of the season in the 100m and the long jump, and was amazed to get relief marks with some ease. He emerged as a world star. It was confirmed at the inaugural World Athletics Championships in Helsinki, Finland, in 1983, where Lewis won his first major international success, achieving victory in the 100 m, long jump and relays 4 × 100 m. He became vegan (vegetarian without eggs or dairy) in 1990, and he himself narrates in his book “Very Vegetarian” (very vegetarian) that after this change had the best sports performance of his life.
