What is Noah Lyles’ age, height, weight and more?

American sprinting superstar Noah Lyles boasts an impressive string of accolades, including Olympic bronze, six world titles, and four Diamond League Final trophies.

Lyles delivered his crowning achievement at the 2023 World Championship in Budapest, where he retained his 200m crown from 2019 and 2022 to complete the three-peat. In the process, he claimed a rare sprint treble, winning gold in the 100m, 200m, and the 4x100m relay, the first man to do so since Jamaican icon Usain Bolt in 2015. 

A longtime admirer of Bolt, Lyles has expressed his desire to break the Jamaican’s longstanding records in the 100m and 200m events. “I’ve always known that I’m the fastest man in the world,” he told the media after his triumph in Hungary. “Well, in my head, I think I’m going to break it. I’m planning to break it.” Lyles has revealed an audacious plan for Paris 2024, a bid to win four gold medals by adding the 4x400m relay to his repertoire at the global showpiece. 

Early Career of Noah Lyles

Lyles started his career with the United States athletics team at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games. Noah impressed everyone around in the field and clinched the gold medal in the 200 m. Subsequently, in January 2015 Lyles cleared 2.03 m (6 ft 7+34 in) in the high jump as a high school junior. This earned him recognition in the USA national athletics area. Later on, in November 2015, he was named 2015 high school Boys Athlete of the Year by Track & Field News.

Subsequently, in March 2016 Lyles won the 200 m at the New Balance Nationals Indoor. Consequently, in April 2016 Lyles won both the 100 m and 200 m at the 2016 Arcadia Invitational. Moreover, he had also set new meet records of 10.17 s and 20.48 seconds in both events respectively. In June 2016, Lyles won the 100 m in 10.08 s at the USA Junior Championships.

In July 2016, Lyles went to the U.S. Olympic Trials to compete for spots on the Olympic team in the 100 m and the 200 m. He failed to advance from his first 100 m heat, but in the 200 m, he won his semi-final and then placed fourth in the final with a time of 20.09 s, breaking a 31-year-old national high school record. Though he didn’t qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics, he qualified for the 2016 World U20 Championships where he was a double gold medalist, taking the 100 m and 4 × 100 m relay titles. Following this, Noah has been a regular and vital part of the USA athletics team.
