TOKYO (AP) - Olympic great Carl Lewis has offered support for Tokyo's bid to host the 2020 Olympics after visiting the place he describes as the venue for the best race of his life.

The nine-time Olympic gold medalist came to Japan hoping to inspire young athletes from the northeastern part of the country that was struck by a 9.0 earthquake and devastating tsunami in March 2011, but says it was he who came away inspired.
