Noah Lyles

Noah Lyles capped his season by winning the Diamond League 200m final in 19.52 seconds in Zurich, Switzerland, giving him five of the 13 fastest times in history.

Usain Bolt has four of the 13 fastest times, including a world record of 19.19. Lyles broke down Michael JohnsonAmerican record in repeating as world champion in July in 19.31. Overall, Lyles ran 19.67 or faster a total of seven times in 2022 and 19.52 or faster a total of three times in 2022, both the most of any single-year sprinter in history.

His 19.52 (upwind) matches the 12th-best time in history, his since winning last year’s Olympic Trials. Lyles bounced back from the disappointment of an Olympic bronze medal to run the fastest time in the world in 2021 after the Tokyo Games, then put together arguably the strongest 200m sprint season in history this year.

Lyles, 25, has since been open about his pursuit of the world record.
