The free iHeart app is where to go to listen to exclusive play-by-play action of Team USA. To celebrate, we are spotlighting some of the country's athletes that are vying for gold.

American sprinter Noah Lyles, a 26-year-old athlete from Alexandria, Virginia, has made a name for himself in the world of track and field. Born into a sports-loving family, Lyles began his athletic journey at the age of 12, initially as a youth gymnast before transitioning to track and field.

Lyles' parents, Keisha Caine and Kevin Lyles, both competed in track and field at Seton Hall University. His younger brother, Josephus Lyles, is also a professional sprinter. Lyles attended T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, and committed to the University of Florida, but decided to go professional, signing a deal with Adidas.

Lyles has an impressive record, including an Olympic bronze, six world titles, and four Diamond League Final trophies. He made history at the 2023 World Championship in Budapest, retaining his 200m crown from 2019 and 2022 to complete a three-peat. He also won gold in the 100m, 200m, and the 4x100m relay, becoming the first man to do so since Usain Bolt in 2015.

Lyles has expressed his ambition to break Bolt's longstanding records in the 100m and 200m events. He has revealed plans to win four gold medals at Paris 2024 by adding the 4x400m relay to his repertoire.

Off the track, Lyles is a vocal advocate for mental health awareness and has shared his own struggles with mental health. He also advocates for elevating track and field's marketing presence, aspiring to raise the sport's profile to the level of other major sports.
