Top 5 Summer Olympic Moments

While there's room for debate, these five top our list.

5. Carl Lewis - Unbeatable in 1984 Games

During the Los Angeles Games in 1984, Carl Lewis tied Jesse Owens’ record, winning four gold metals in track and field. Lewis put it all together to dominate the competition - taking the gold in the long jump, 100, 200, and 4×100-meter relay. Like the great Jesse Owens before him, the man could not be beat. Lewis eventually won gold medals at four consecutive Olympics in the long jump to add to his remarkable list of Olympic achievements, but it was the '84 games that showcased his track and field supremacy.
