Question: Is there pressure being number one?

Carl Lewis: Not really, because I don't start in the outer world; I am in my own world. At the 200-metre relay, I blow kisses, sign autographs. There is no pressure from outside because I am having a good time. All the time I am very relaxed, confident, with nothing to worry about. I feel peace of mind.
