Blink and you’ll miss it. Alexandria’s Noah Lyles broke the American record in the 200 meter race at the track and field World Championships in Eugene, Oregon, on Thursday (July 21).
Lyles clocked in at 19.31 seconds, breaking Michael Johnson’s 200 meter record of 19.32 seconds, which was set at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.
“This year, all me and my coach was talking about was we’re going after that record,” Lyles told reporters after the race.
The 25-year-old Lyles also won the race in the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
Lyles, the winner of the bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics, is a 2016 graduate of T.C. Williams High School (now Alexandria City High School).
