American Sprinter Noah Lyles recently shattered the record for the fastest 200m in 18.90 seconds beating Usain Bolt record of 19.19 seconds by a margin of 0.29. However, later it was found that the 22 years old only ran for 185m and not 200.
Broadcaster Steve Cram, who also set some records for himself was heard incredulously saying, “That cannot be right! That cannot be right!” after it went down. This issue was noticed by French coach and analyst PJ Vazel, who also thinks that this wasn’t Lyles’ fault.
The joy for the American was for a short period as the event organizers realized that he’s been given the wrong lane. Even before reality fully came out, the result looked too good to be true.
“You can’t be playing with my emotions like this… Got me in the wrong [line] smh.” Noah tweeted.
Noah was disqualified from the race and French sprinter Christophe Lemaitre took the victory instead. Unfortunately, for Noah who was running his race on U.S soil in Florida, a simple mistake came to bite him back.
