IAAF Chief: Bolt better than Lewis

Usain Bolt is in an Olympic league of his own, said IAAF President Lamine Diack. One where even the great Carl Lewis has no place.
It is Bolt's perfect three races-three gold medals-three world records versus Lewis quadruple at the 1984 Los Angeles Games and nine gold overall.
"Lewis won one more with the long jump," said Diack of Lewis's performance in 1984, which also included the 100, 200 and the sprint relays. But in Beijing, Bolt kept piling on the world records. "It is the difference," he said.
Lewis had only one in Los Angeles, together with his relay teammates.
