Making a judicious decison, Noah Lyles and his coach, Lance Brauman, have made the decision not to double at the US Champs in 2019. With such a long career ahead of him, and the original 2019 plan of sticking with the 200m, Lyles confirmed with Reuters that he would focus on the 200m. We at runblogrun applaud that decision.
No double for Lyles
ORLANDO (USA): Noah Lyles will not contest 100/200 m double at US nationals later this month in Des Moines. Informs Reuters. “I feel like I’m improving in the 100m every race. But after thinking about it the last couple days, we decided it is better to just stick to the plan we’ve had since the fall and focus on the 200m this year,” Lyles added for Reuters. But he said he thinks about the double for 2020 Olympic season. “We have already decided to do the double next year at the Olympic Trials. That’s for sure,” he noted.
