Noah Lyles is an American professional track and field specialising in sprints. He won a gold each in 200m and 4x100m relay at the 2019 Doha World Championships. He holds personal bests of 9.86 seconds for the 100m and 19.50 seconds for the 200m. Lyles holds the 300m indoor world record with a time of 31.87 seconds from the 2017 USA Indoor Championships.
It will be an understatement to say that Lyles, ranked World No.1 in 200m, is a hot favourite to claim the half-lap gold at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics 2020. Such has been his dominance in 200m that nobody seems even close to even challenge Lyles and therefore, it will be a huge disappointment for Lyles and America if he returns with anything other than gold. But before he weaves his magic in Tokyo, let us know a lot more about Noah Lyles.

Noah isn’t the only speedster in his family. His parents, Keisha Cane and Kevin Lyles were track and field athletes at Seton Hall University. Moreover, his younger brother, Josephus is also an elite sprinter who takes parts in global competitions.
With athletics running in his blood, Lyles becoming a world-beater was bound to happen some day or the other. Now is the time for him to show the world that 200m gold at the quadrennial event belongs to him and him only. Don’t forget that he can come out of the Olympics as a triple medalist as the USA is more or less confirmed of a medal in the 4x100m relays while Lyles also has an outside chance in the 100m dash.
