Question: Were you always good in running?

Carl Lewis: I started off good. Then for a number of years I was not very good. I have experienced winning and also very severe losing. Very! But I think it was important in my life to have seen both sides. I have seen people run faster and slower than me, and that was important. It taught me how to deal with people better, and how to deal with the sport.
