2018 Men’s 200 World Rankings

Noah Lyles capped his half-lap season with his fourth straight 19.6 of the year. (GIANCARLO COLOMBO/PHOTO RUN)

U.S. ATHLETE OF THE YEAR Noah Lyles put up some historic 200 numbers in 2018. His 5-race half-lap sequence went like this: 19.83, 19.69, 19.69, 19.65, 19.67. Only one other man—some dude named Usain Bolt—has ever had 4 consecutive sub-19.70s in the same year.

REIGNING NO. 1 Ramil Guliyev drops down a slot in a close battle for the runner-up spot with Jereem Richards. They split their 4 meetings 3–3, but most of the Turk’s wins came in the more important second half of the season, whereas the Jamaican notched his early…

COLLEGIATE STAR Michael Norman was only a light presence on the DL Circuit, but he lost only to Lyles all season and did pick up a pair of wins over each of Nos. 5 & 6, Alex Quiñonez and Alonso Edward… Rai Benjamin and Akeem Bloomfield, the Nos. 8 & 9 choices running in a secondary event, each had only a pair of races, but that was enough. They also each scored in their prime events, Benjamin taking No. 5 in the 400H, Bloomfield No. 10 in the 400.
