Noah Lyles is the fastest man in America as he breaks 200m record at the 2022 World’s Athletic Championships

At the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, Noah Lyles broke the 200-meter record for the United States by dominating the competition.

Michael Johnson’s 26-year-old US record was broken by the slimmest of margins when Lyles ran a 19.32.

To complete a clean sweep on the podium, fellow Americans Kenneth Bednarek and Erriyon Knighton took home the silver and bronze medals, respectively.

The 25-year-old Lyles’ time was the third-fastest in history, trailing only Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake (19.19 and 19.26 respectively).

Lyles and 18-year-old sprint sensation Knighton were expected to face off head-to-head in the race, but the champion easily defeated the competition.

Lyles got off to a quick start before running a remarkable bend and sprinting down the finish line to win with ease.
