American track and field sensation Noah Liles, 26, won the 100 meters at the World Championships, taking his first step toward a triple crown. He is considered the next track and field emperor to succeed Usain Bolt (37-Jamaica).
Liles clocked 9.83 seconds in the men’s 100-meter final at the Budapest 2023 World Athletics Championships at the Budapest National Stadium in Hungary on July 21. The 9.83 is the fastest time ever run by a male athlete in any event this season. It is also a personal best for Liles. Lechile Tebogo (20-Botswana) was second and Janelle Hughes (28-UK-over 9.88) was third. The second and third places were separated by 0.001 seconds. 온라인카지노
Liles’ win was an upset, as his main event is the 200 meters. He had won back-to-back 200m titles at the 2019 and 2022 World Championships, but had never won the 100m. At the U.S. trials, he ran 10.00 in the 100 meters and finished third. But he didn’t give up, vowing to “go 9.65” in the 100 meters, and eventually finished first. “Athletics needs a new narrative,” he said after the race. A lot of people laughed at me when I said I was going to win the 100 meters, but I was confident.”
If she also wins her main events, the 200m (26th) and 400m relay (27th), she will become the first woman to win a three-peat since Bolt in 2015. No athlete has ever won the 100m and 200m at the same time, and he celebrated his victory with his trademark “long winded gesture” of clasping his hands together and throwing them into the air. The breezy, playful gesture reminded many of Bolt’s “lightning bolt” in the past.
Liles is also a symbol of overcoming adversity. He suffered from severe asthma as a child that caused attacks, and later in life he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia. It was his mother who stood by him during this difficult time. She helped him get back on track with diet and encouraged him to focus on art and music. Liles hasn’t been shy about his health, saying in 2020 that he’s on antidepressants because his mother taught him to “say you’re sick when you’re sick.” He’s working on a documentary about his story.
