Question: What happened when you were going for Beamon's record but failed. Did you feel miserable?Carl Lewis: No, I didn't! But I know that I am going to do it. Nothing is going to stand in the way of it. I don't feel that there is any obstacle that can prevent it; it's going to happen! I feel I have the talent.
