Lyles sets world record in winning 300 meters
Noah Lyles, a three-time AllMet Athlete of the Year from T.C. Williams High, set a world record in winning the 300 meters in 31.87 seconds at the USA Track & Field indoor championships in Albuquerque on Saturday night.
Lyles held off Paul Dedewo by 0.05 seconds to top the previous mark of 31.88, set in 2006 by Wallace Spearmon.
After graduating from the Alexandria school, Lyles emerged in the national spotlight in July 2016 by finishing fourth in the 200 at the Olympic trials, missing a trip to Rio by 0.09 seconds. He and his brother, Josephus, turned pro two weeks later, signing with Adidas instead of running at Florida. COLLEGE LACROSSE
