Alexandria sprinter Noah Lyles took home the bronze medal in the 200 meters in the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday, August 4.
The 24-year-old clocked in at 19.74 seconds, behind silver medalist Kenneth Bednarek’s 19.62 seconds and Canada’s Andre de Grasse, who took home gold with 19.62 seconds — the fastest 200m in the world this year. Lyles previously ran the fastest 200m this year with the same time of 19.74 in the Olympic trials in June.
Congratulations to Lyles were tweeted out from all over country, including back at home from Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson and the Alexandria City High School (ACHS) track team. Lyles is a graduate of T.C. Williams High School (now ACHS) and fulfilled a lifelong dream to compete in the Olympics.
At an Olympic viewing party earlier this week, Lyles’ mother told ALXnow that her son now wants to go on a vacation.
“I think he wants to go to Bermuda, Mexico, and probably a couple other places,” she said.
Congrats to @LylesNoah for bringing home the Bronze and ably representing our City and our nation!
