Noah Lyles shuts down 2023 season
Top American sprinter Noah Lyles has ended his season, less than a week after he captured the sprint treble at the World Athletics Championships in Hungary.
In a social media post he included three checkboxes, the world’s fastest man in 100 & 200 metres, ……..2 years undefeated in the 200 metres and 3x world champion, saying that he has ended his season.
The news means the 26-year-old, arguably the U.S. team’s biggest name, will not race at home in the diamond league final on September 16-17 in Eugene.
Lyles closed his season with a victory in the 200 metres at the Weltklasse diamond league meeting on Thursday in Zurich, and tops the 200 metres standings with wins in all three of his appearances.
The diamond league circuit has two stops before the final, today at xiamen, china and the memorial van damme, on September 8-9 in Brussels.
In one of the major highlights of the Budapest World Championships, Lyles captured gold in the 100, 200 and 4×100 metres relay, becoming the first man to achieve the feat since Jamaican Usain Bolt in 2015.
