New York features seven of the best brands of the year

    If Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Donavan Brazier adorned their triumphs with the best records of the course, Lyles and Norman did not come close to the expected marks. Especially Noah Lyles, current 200-meter outdoor world champion, who if in the test of 60 smooths did not even qualify for the final, after signing a time of 6.76 seconds in the series, in the final of the double hectometer he won with some ‘discreet’ 20.80 seconds. Very far from the 20.45 that his compatriot Courtney Lindsey established on January 16 as the best world record of the year. A disappointment that Lyles couldn’t hide, as his frowning face showed after checking his mark.

    It also didn’t shine as expected Michael Norman in the 400 meters, by winning victory with a time of 45.34 seconds, after beating his compatriot and training partner in a tight final Rai benjamin, second with a ‘chrono’ of 45.39.
