    Why would you want a man like Lewis. He’s a lying cheat. Everyone knows he took banned substances while he competed yet he walks around and talks like he never did a thing wrong in his life. I’m sure you could find better human being than him, Even Ben Johnson admitted to taking banned substances and has been apologizing for it for the last 25 years. Lewis isn’t man enough to do that.
