Alexandria High School Graduate Is Now ‘World’s Fastest Man’

Noah Lyles, a 26-year-old from Alexandria, Virginia, earned the title of “World’s Fastest Man” this past weekend, after winning the gold medal in the 100-meter dash during the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

On Friday, he has a chance to become the first man to win the 100 and 200 meter races at a world championship since Usain Bolt did it eight years ago.

On Saturday, he’s aiming for another win in the 4X100 relay, which would make him the first American to bring home three gold medals at a single world championship since 2007.
