Noah Lyles, the American star fighter, sets out to conquer Budapest
Recently, Usain Bolt managed to achieve the triathlon he wanted (100m relay, 200m relay, 4x100m relay). The Jamaican legend has swept three gold medals at three world championships (2009, 2013, 2015) and three Olympics (2008, 2012, 2016), though he later lost his first five-ring success due to a doping violation by one of his team. colleagues.
The 200m sprint suits Lyles very well, he’s won the event in the last two World Cups, but at the same time, knowing similar egos, it’s questionable what the Americans will do next to each other in the relay. Last year, they won all the medals in the 100m, but in the 4×100 they only took silver behind Canada.
Does Noah Lyles break Usain Bolt’s world record?
The American runner promised a time of 9.65 seconds in the 100 meters and 19.10 seconds in the 200 meters before the World Championships in Athletics in Budapest. The latter in particular made a big splash, as the world record for the semi-circle distance is 19.19 seconds, which Usain Bolt ran in 2009, in the final of the World Championships in Berlin.
Lyles’ personal best is 19.31, which is the best for an American since last year’s World Cup final. Michael Johnson made a century in Atlanta in 1996. (Interestingly, in 1995, Johnson won the World Cup gold with Noah’s father Lyles in 4×400 relay, although Kevin Lyles only ran in the heats, and Johnson only in the final.) This year, his best time was 19.47, but the 100m final has already proven that Lyles’ timing is stellar. Additionally, Lillis broke a Bolt record but is still noteworthy this year, and the American now holds the record for most 200s under 20 seconds.
