US high school sensation Noah Lyles, 18, has added the title of “World Junior champion” to his already impressive resume. Lyles, who was 4th in the 200 at the US Olympic Track and Field Trials earlier this month, came on late to get the win in 10.17. You can watch the race below.
Lyles didn’t run the 200 at US juniors so fellow 18-year old phenom Michael Norman, who was 5th at the Olympic Trials, will now be the favorite in that event. Lyles had better watch out as his 20.09 American junior record could be in jeopardy as he’s run 20.14.
