World champion Noah Lyles secured his spot in the upcoming Olympics in Paris, winning the 100m race at the US Olympic trials, SSP reported. Lyles, who had previously missed out on the 100m event at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, recorded a commendable time of 9.83 seconds, matching his personal best. Joining him in qualification were Kenny Bednarek, who finished second with 9.87 seconds, and Fred Kerley, the Tokyo 2020 silver medallist, who secured third place with a time of 9.88 seconds. 

Reflecting on his victory, Lyles expressed his determination and spoke about how three years ago, he had finished second to last, whereas now, he emerged triumphant. In the semi-finals, Lyles even clocked an impressive time of 9.80 seconds, although it was wind-assisted. He attributed his success to his unwavering focus on the goal he had set for himself.

Lyles, who earned a bronze medal in the 200m event during the Tokyo Olympics, revealed how his achievement in Japan fueled his desire to continue striving for success. Without that motivation, he believes he wouldn't have accomplished all that he has up to this point. Looking ahead to the future, Lyles approaches it with optimism and an open mind, acknowledging that anything can happen in the world of sports.

The US trials held more surprises as 2019 world champion Christian Coleman fell short of qualifying, finishing fourth in the race. In the pole vault event, Sam Kendricks showcased an extraordinary performance by clearing a meet-record height of 5.92m, securing his place in the Olympics.

A notable breakthrough came in the 400m race when 16-year-old Quincy Wilson shattered his own under-18 world record with an impressive time of 44.59 seconds, earning him qualification from the semi-finals.

With the Olympics scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August, the men's 100m final will be a highly anticipated event set to occur on 4 August. As Lyles and other talented athletes prepare to represent their country on the grand stage, the world eagerly awaits to witness the thrilling track and field competitions that lie ahead.
