American Noah Lyles breaks Usain Bolt’s 200m world record – before being told he only ran 185m
“American Noah Lyles was denied a new 200 meters world record in the Inspiration Games after it was revealed he ran only 185m.”
“The 22-year-old’s time of 18.90 seconds would have usurped the 19.19-second mark set by Jamaican great Usain Bolt in 2009.”
“Lyles, running in Florida, set the time racing alone against competitors simultaneously sprinting on tracks in Europe. Given his personal best is 19.50, the time was immediately challenged.” Yahoo! Sports reports.
