A former Virginian is currently the fastest man on the planet.
Noah Lyles won the USA Track and Field championships 100-meter title June 22 with a 9.88 clocking in Des Moines, Iowa.
In doing so, the 20-year-old former T.C. Williams High of Alexandria standout posted a Drake Stadium record and also the fastest time in the world this calendar year.
Jamaican Usain Bolt, now retired, set the existing world record with a 9.58 in Berlin, Germany, in 2009.
