Question: What do you do just before an event?

Carl Lewis: I go over every single aspect of the race or jump. Then I think of the mechanics of the start. After that, everything else is natural. Before the long jump, I bend over and get relaxed, and then attack the board. I paint a mental picture of what I want to do, and then I am able to carry it out.
