Noah Lyles is aiming for a hat-trick of victories in the men’s 200m at the New York City meet. Lyles, who dazzled the 2023 season by winning the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay at the World Athletics Championships — a feat last achieved in 2015 — also clinched his first USATF Indoor title at 60m and won silver in both the 60m and the 4x400m relay at the World Athletics Indoor Championships.

Gabby Thomas is also set to return, following a stellar 2023 season where she clinched gold in the 4x100m relay and silver in the 200m at the World Championships. With a personal best of 21.60 in the 200m, set at the USATF Outdoor Championships, Thomas ranks as the fourth-fastest woman ever in the event.

Making his first appearance at the Grand Prix, Rai Benjamin, a local hero from nearby Mt. Vernon, New York, looks to impress in his first race at Icahn Stadium since his high school days. Benjamin, the second fastest 400m hurdler of all time, added to his impressive resume with a silver in the 400m hurdles and a gold in the 4x400m relay at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, and replicated these feats at the 2019 and 2022 World Championships. At the last World Championships, he anchored the U.S. team to a gold medal finish in the 4x400m relay.

The 2024 USATF NYC Grand Prix promises thrilling action and will be broadcast live on NBC from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT, and on Peacock from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 9.
