2019 Men’s 200 World Rankings

Leader Noah Lyles captured the USATF title over No. 8-rated Christian Coleman. (KEVIN MORRIS)

IT WAS SOMETHING OF A SURPRISE when reigning No. 1 Noah Lyles opened his season with a loss, but to show at what a high level the young American now operates, only 5 times in history had anybody run faster and lost. That would be his only half-lap loss of the year, and in his next outing he unleashed his best time ever, 19.50, to move to No. 4 on the all-time list. He was undefeated the rest of the year and broke 19.8 in 5 of his 6 finals…

MICHAEL NORMAN handed Lyles that only loss, but a combination of injuries and concentration on the 400 held him to only a pair of 200s and that thin season finds him ending up at No. 6 despite running 19.84 and 19.70… The runner-up spot goes to Andre De Grasse, who last held that position in ’16, followed by ’17’s No. 1, Ramil Guliyev. They were easy to sort out, the Canadian beating the Turk 3–0 in their three meetings.
