Transcript Wounded Knee It was a series of events that Carl probably won't like to remember. After winning four gold medals at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, beginning a new career as a pop singer, and at the same time looking forward to the 1988 Games in Seoul, it seemed as if nothing could go wrong for Carl Lewis. But for the ex-University of Houston track star, the 1986 Olympic Festival in his home town was a disaster. Lewis came into this important meet, held in Robertson Stadium, nursing a sore knee. Competing in the first of his events, the 4x100 meters, Lewis — on the fourth leg — came from behind to finish first. On the platform accepting the gold medal, Lewis and his teammates, Floyd Heard, Wallace Spearman and Kirk Baptiste, learned that they had been disqualified. It seems early on in the race, Heard stepped out of his lane, resulting in a lane vio lation disqualification for the team. On his second day out Lewis was expected to win the gold in the long jump with ease. But it was questionable as to whether or not he would even compete. As warm-up got underway, Lewis finally had to succumb to his knee injury, and reluctantly throw in the towel. 138
