Noah demonstrated pure class as he ran 19.69 in the 200m

Noah Lyles offered another fluent demonstration at Lausanne’s Athletissima IAAF Diamond League fixture. He equalled his 2018 world-leading time and personal best of 19.69 to win a 200 metres stacked with talent from his equally young compatriots.

It was another hugely talented US athlete, Michael Norman – who won last month’s NCAA 400m title in a 2018 world-leading 43.61 and followed up with a 200m victory in Paris last Saturday in 19.84 – who led into the final straight, but Lyles moved smoothly past his right shoulder over the final 50 metres.

Norman clocked 19.88, with Ecuador’s Alex Quinonez third in 20.08, one place ahead of Norman’s University of Southern California team-mate Rai Benjamin, winner of his own NCAA title over 400m hurdles in 47.02, who clocked 20.16.

After doing a no doubt carefully choreographed dance of celebration, Lyles pronounced himself “very pleased” to have matched his best time, although he added: “It could have been faster.”
