Noah Lyles targets Olympic glory after blazing 60m victory at Boston Indoor Grand Prix

Posted : 05 February 2024

Lyles' impressive performance positions him as a formidable contender on the global stage, showcasing his relentless pursuit of excellence in sprinting.

 

Noah Lyles, the reigning 100m, 200m, and 4x100m world champion, expressed his ambition to conquer "all the Olympic medals" after achieving a personal best in the 60m at the Boston Indoor Grand Prix.

 

 The 26-year-old American sprinter clocked an impressive time of 6.44 seconds, the fastest recorded in 2024 and merely 0.10 seconds shy of Christian Coleman's indoor world record. Lyles, who plans to compete in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m events at the upcoming Paris Olympics, confidently declared, "I don't care who wants it. It's mine."

 

Reflecting on his progress, Lyles emphasized his improvement in the 60m, which he considered the weakest part of his race, and asserted, "It's dangerous out here."

 

Drawing inspiration from his achievements in 2022 and the previous year, including setting an American record and clinching a three-time world championship, Lyles expressed his pursuit of another significant personal record, indicating a formidable challenge for all Olympic medals.

 

In a closely contested race, Lyles secured victory by a mere 0.01 seconds, narrowly edging out Jamaica's Ackeem Blake, while American Ronnie Baker claimed the third spot. With the World Indoor Championships scheduled for March 1-3 in Glasgow and the Olympics commencing on July 26, Lyles remains a formidable force, aiming for further accolades on the global stage.
