Noah Lyles realized he had run the best race of his life — and perhaps the best 200 meters any American

had at any point run. He completed such a long ways in front of different sprinters in Thursday night's last at the World Athletics Championships

that in the wake of crossing the end goal, he went to gaze intently at his main genuine rival: the clock.

However, for anguishing minutes, the on-field clock obstinately showed Lyles' informal time as 19.32. 

The imprint would encourage some other sprinter on the planet, yet it was additionally a similar time 

Michael Johnson set in the 200 meters at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. From that point forward, it has appeared to be unassailable. As of recently.

Lyles, 25, remained with his hands on his hips, gazing. He strolled over to the clock at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., conversing with it.

"I was advising it to give me a little room to breath, you know?" he later expressed, giggling with correspondents. "How's it will show a similar time, 19.32? Come on, change that."
