Olympics: Carl Lewis expects `surprise` in men`s 100m eventLondon: American track and field legend Carl Lewis expects close competition in the men`s 100 metres event in the London Olympics.


"I never do prediction on races. But I think the big issue is that there is going to be a surprise possibly," Lewis was quoted as saying by Xinhua Tuesday.


"I am really excited about the American team because they are no longer the fastest team in the world. But I think we are. We will probably get more gold medals in the sprint and hurdles events and more medals than any other teams," said the 51-year-old American who won 10 Olympic medals including 9 gold, and 10 World Championships medals, including 8 gold.


Lewis played down the chance of a new men`s 100m world record in London.

"I will not even think about the world record. I think the Olympics is about performance. I always say records are borrowed and the medals owned. So you come here focusing only on the medal," said Lewis.
