STAMFORD, Conn. – Feb. 9, 2023 – Tokyo Olympians Noah Lyles, Ryan Crouser, and Ajee’ Wilson headline NBC Sports’ live coverage of the 115th Millrose Games from New York, N.Y., this Saturday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. The iconic meet, held at The Armory in Manhattan, doubles as a stop on the World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold.
Reigning 200m world champion and American record holder Lyles is expected to compete in the men’s 60m, where he will face an elite field including 2019 100m world champion Christian Coleman. Lyles won the 60m at last weekend’s New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston in a personal best time of 6.51 seconds, beating 2022 100m world bronze medalist Trayvon Bromell.
Wilson, a seven-time Millrose winner, is expected to compete in the 600m. The 2022 800m indoor world champion has not lost a race at The Armory since 2013 and extended that streak with a victory in the 1000m at the Dr. Sander Invitational in January. She won the 800m at last weekend’s New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in a time of 2:00.45.
Two-time shot put Olympic champion and world record holder Ryan Crouser, who won his first World Championship gold medal last summer, is expected to square off against rival and two-time world champion Joe Kovacs. Newly minted pro Abby Steiner, a member of two gold medal-winning relays at the 2022 World Championships, is set to face Tokyo Olympic 4x100m silver medalist Jenna Prandini in the 300m.
The Wanamaker Mile, the Millrose Games’ signature race, boasts yet another competitive field, headlined by reigning Wanamaker Mile champion and Commonwealth Games 1500m gold medalist Ollie Hoare (Australia) in the men’s race. Joining him are 2021 U.S. 1500m champion Cole Hocker, indoor 3000m American record holder Yared Nuguse, and European 1500m bronze medalist Mario Garcia Romo (Spain). On the women’s side, Tokyo Olympic 1500m silver medalist Laura Muir (Great Britain) and 2022 U.S. 1500m champion Sinclaire Johnson lead the field.
Other notable athletes expected to compete on Saturday include reigning world and Olympic pole vault champion Katie Moon (née Nageotte), 2022 U.S. 1500m champion Cooper Teare, Tokyo Olympic 1500m bronze medalist Josh Kerr (Great Britain), and 10,000m Tokyo Olympian Alicia Monson.
NBC Sports’ Paul Swangard will call the event, joined by four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon, four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross, and two-time Olympian Kara Goucher. Lewis Johnson will serve as reporter.
