Athletics: Carl Lewis says Asians need sport 'heroes'

US sprint and long jump legend Carl Lewis said Monday that Asians badly needed "heroes" in track and field in their countries to become a world-class force in the high-profile sport. "We had heroes (in the United States) when I was growing up. I saw athletes I wanted to emulate. I think that's important," Lewis told reporters in Tokyo after attending a clinic for junior athletes in Japan's tsunami-hit northeast.
