World 200m champion Noah Lyles has donated one of his World Championships team USA singlets, a pair of stars & stripes socks and a signed competition bib number from the World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 to the World Athletics Heritage Collection.

The 22-year-old star earned his first international title when winning the 200m at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games, but he first grabbed international headlines on this day three years ago when speeding to a 200m PB of 19.90 on his Diamond League debut in Shanghai.

 

 

Last year he earned a golden double at the World Athletics Championships in Doha. As well as emphatically winning his individual 200m in 19.83, four days later, on 5 October, Lyles anchored the USA 4x100m squad in style to relay gold in 37.10.

In between his two gold medal finishes, Lyles and his mother took some time out on 4 October to visit the World Athletics Championships Heritage Exhibition, which was situated in the City Center shopping mall, adjacent to the USA team hotel in Doha.
