Two-time world 200m champion Noah Lyles has explained why he had goosebumps watching an episode between Sha'Carri Richardson and her coach Dennis Mitchell in their Sprint docuseries.

Triple world champion Noah Lyles has admitted to having goosebumps while watching the moment between Sha’Carri Richardson and her coach Dennis Mitchell in the ‘Sprint’ docuseries.

Lyles noted that it was a great depiction of how track and field works and it would be an eye opener for track and field fans who watched the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary last year where Richardson won the 100m.

The American explained that it would keep them glued to the screens to watch the whole series just because of how things where pictured in that moment.

“There was a part with Dennis and Sha’Carri and I’m not going to lie that gave me goosebumps and I was like I need to get to the track right now and run," Lyles said in an interview with Letsrun.com.

“I really liked that moment because I felt like it encapsulated kind of everything that was going on in a perfect preview to what was going to happen for people who had seen the World Championships that would make them be like, ‘Oh man, I got to get more of this’."

The two-time world 200m champion added that the series humanised many people, something he believes is not great for track and field rivalries.

The Olympic Games 200m bronze medallist was also quick to note that he will not binge the whole series since he does not want to be humanised as he plans to make history at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

He also explained that it might humanise his competitors, something that’s not ideal for them since he will not be out to play in Paris.

“It humanised a lot of people a little too much for me…I was planning to binge this before the Olympics but maybe not anymore because it might humanise my competitors a little too much and that might not be the best thing going in with the kill-be-killed mentality,” Lyles said.
