Lyles Aims for 100m Stadium Record at Racers Grand Prix

Reigning World sprint double Champion Noah Lyles has announced his ambition to break the Stadium record in the men’s 100 meters at the 6th staging of the Racers Grand Prix at the National Stadium.

The current Stadium record for the 100 meters stands at 9.75 seconds, set by Yohan Blake during the National Championships in 2012.

This time surpassed the previous mark of 9.76 seconds set by Usain Bolt in 2008 at the Jamaica International Invitational.

Lyles, who boasts a personal best of 9.83 seconds achieved en route to his gold medal at last year’s World Athletics Championships in Budapest, is poised to make history today.


Competing alongside Lyles will be young Jamaican sprint star Oblique Seville, Britain’s Zharnel Hughes, and Kenya’s Ferdinand Omanyala, promising a fiercely competitive race.

Lyles underscored the importance of top athletes competing regularly to maintain high standards in the sport, rather than reserving their best efforts solely for major championships.

The Racers Grand Prix will also showcase other marquee athletes, including Olympic Champion Hansle Parchment, World 400 meters champion Antonio Watson, and World Under 20 record holders Triple jumper Jaydon Hibbert and 400 meters hurdler Roshawn Clarke.
