Ostrava - American sprinter Noah Lyles has a major reason to celebrate. He won two gold medals at the 2018 IAAF Continental Cup, which was held over a two-day period: September 8 and 9.
This track and field competition took place at Ostrava, Czech Republic. On September 8, Lyles was a part of the men's 4 x 100 meter relay team, where they represented the "Americas." He was joined by fellow American Mike Rodgers, as well as Jamaican sprinters Yohan Blake and Tyquendo Tracey. They won the relay race in a time of 38.05 seconds, leaving the European sprinters in second place with 38.96 seconds and Asia-Pacific in third place with 39.55 seconds.
On the following day, Lyles also shined in the men's 100 meter dash. Lyles won first place with a time of 10.01 seconds, representing the "Americas." Chinese sprinter Su Bingtian came in second place with a time of 10.03 seconds, and South African sprinter Akani Simbine finished third with a time of 10.11 seconds.
Lyles' personal bests in the sport are 9.88 seconds for the men's 100 meter dash, as well as 19.65 seconds for the men's 200 meter dash. At the 2016 World Junior Championships that were held in Bydgoszcz, Poland, Lyles took home gold medals in the men's 100 meter dash and the 4x100 meter relay for Team USA.
