Lewis Nears Finished Line

Compiled From Wire Services

Carl Lewis, who will be 35 on July 1, says this year will be his last Olympic Games. He will likely retire before the 1997 World Championships in Greece.

Last season was the first time since high school that Lewis failed to rank among the world’s top 10 in the 100. His No. 7 ranking in the long jump was his lowest since high school.
