STAMFORD, Conn. – Aug. 29, 2023 – This past week, U.S. sprinter Noah Lyles cemented his status as the world’s fastest human by winning the men’s 100m, 200m, and 4x100m world titles at the 2023 World Track & Field Championships in Budapest, Hungary, becoming the first man since Usain Bolt (2015) to complete the historic triple at a single World Championships. Episode One of Untitled: The Noah Lyles Project, Peacock’s exclusive docuseries on the six-time world champion, is available now for streaming, while Episode Two, premiering Friday, Sept. 15, will provide unprecedented access into this historic World Track & Field Championship performance.
Episode One of Untitled: The Noah Lyles Project, now available on Peacock, dives into the first half of Lyles’ 2023 outdoor season, culminating in the Tokyo Olympic 200m bronze medalist qualifying for the U.S. 100m team at the USATF Outdoor Championships in July. Highlights along the way include meeting Bolt in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, at the Racers Grand Prix, winning the 200m in front of an electric crowd at the NYC Grand Prix, and reflecting on his 2022 200m world championship and American Record with 2016 Rio Olympic 4x100m champion Asafa Powell (Jamaica).
