Michael Johnson, a well-known personality in track and field, recently backed Noah Lyles’ audacious goal of winning four gold medals at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Lyles’s decision to try new things brought him both joy and derision.

On social media, Johnson stood up for the athlete and declared her unwavering faith in Lyles. Lyles made history at the 2023 World Athletics Championships when he won an amazing three gold medals in one competition. He also won the 100-meter sprint and the 4×100-meter relay. Lyles dominated the 200-meter event for the third time. Following this outstanding display, Lyles focuses on the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris with the goal of achieving even greater success on the international scene.

In an attempt to achieve an unprecedented four-gold medal sweep at the Olympics in Paris, Noah Lyles recently upended the Olympic landscape by declaring he will be competing in the 4x400m relay in addition to the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay events. Track great Michael Johnson encouraged the driven athlete, even though he was mocked for his aspirations. Lyles’ incredible three-gold triumph at the 2023 World Athletics Championships has only increased his motivation and helped him get closer to his objective of competing in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Noah Lyles described how the 4×400-meter relay caught his attention

Noah Lyles revealed earlier this week, in an exclusive interview with World Athletics, his calculated decision to compete in the 4x400m relay at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. He chose it after speaking with a close friend who suggested going after an unprecedented four gold medals rather than his original goal of three. Thinking back to his days as an athlete in high school, a close friend of Lyles’s inspired this bold change by mentioning an event in which Lyles had previously excelled.

Noah Lyles shared; “I’ve never had somebody tell me something that has thrown my out-of-the-box thinking to inside-the-box, but that was like: okay, I’m not going to say no to that. Because after what I did at Budapest and seeing what my body can handle, if I train for it, okay, let’s take a shot. It’s the last race, there’s nothing to lose. If I’m in shape for it and I’ve trained for it all year, sure let’s take a crack at it. If they allow me, if they need me and they are willing – let’s go, let’s take it,” an article from sportskeeda.com shared.
