American Lyles delivers with 100m world gold

Noah Lyles of the U.S. won the men’s 100m final at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, with a personal best time of 9.83 seconds. Letsile Tebogo of Botswana took silver by one thousandth of a second, while Briton Zharnel Hughes claimed the bronze. Former champion Christian Coleman finished fifth. Tebogo’s silver medal makes him the first African to win a world 100m medal, and Hughes is the first Briton on the men’s 100m podium in 20 years. Lyles’ victory also solidifies the United States’ dominance in sprinting, with four consecutive world titles.

The race was highly competitive, with a blanket finish as the top four athletes were separated by just three thousandths of a second. Lyles managed to take the lead in the last 30 meters and secured his victory, although he had predicted a faster time of 9.65. Despite not achieving his predicted time, Lyles expressed his satisfaction with the win and his determination to continue pursuing more gold medals in the championships.

Lyles’ success in the men’s 100m final sets him up for a potential sprint double, as he aims to win the 200m event as well. He will then compete in the sprint relay, hoping to end the championships on a high note. Hughes, who was disqualified in the Tokyo Olympics final, was pleased with his bronze medal and reflected on the unexpected competition from Tebogo.

Unfortunately, defending champion Fred Kerley of the U.S. did not qualify for the final, finishing with a time of 10.02 in the semifinals.
