Lyles to Call Men’s 200m Final in the Broadcasters’ Booth on Sunday at 5:36 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock

STAMFORD, Conn. – Sept. 14, 2023 – Noah Lyles and Sha’Carri Richardson – the fastest man and woman in the world – headline NBC Sports’ presentation of the 2023 Diamond League Final, doubly serving as the Prefontaine Classic this year, which will be held for the first time ever on U.S. soil at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore., this weekend.

Live coverage begins this Saturday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock, with Day Two of competition beginning on Sunday, Sept. 17, at 3 p.m. ET on CNBC and Peacock before switching to NBC at 4 p.m. ET.

Lyles is finishing a historic season that saw him become the first athlete since Usain Bolt in 2015 to win the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m at a single World Championships when he swept all three events in Budapest last month. A four-time Diamond League champion in the 200m, the reigning 100m world champion will be going for his first DL title in the 100m since 2019. He is expected to compete against 2023 world 100m silver medalist Letsile Tobogo (Botswana) and 2019 100m world champion Christian Coleman.

Lyles will be doing more than competing this weekend. On Sunday, the three-time 200m world champion will call the men’s 200m final from the broadcasters’ booth alongside four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon and play-by-play announcer Paul Swangard. The 200m final, featuring 2023 world 200m silver medalist Erriyon Knighton, is scheduled to go off at 5:36 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock.

Richardson, who defeated a competitive field featuring the Jamaican duo of Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (who have 14 world titles between them) to win the 100m at the 2023 World Track & Field Championships, looks to win her first Diamond League title in her signature event. Richardson also earned the gold medal in the 4x100m and the bronze in the 200m to cap off her first World Championships. She is expected to face off against Jackson and five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah (Jamaica)

Additional U.S. stars expected to compete include two-time shot put world champion and world record holder Ryan Crouser, who won the world title in August despite competing with two blood clots in one of his legs, three-time 110m hurdles world champion Grant Holloway, two-time pole vault world champion Katie Moon, 2023 world 400m hurdles silver medalist Shamier Little, and 2023 U.S. 1500m champion Yared Nuguse.

Additionally, 2023 800m world bronze medalist Athing Mu is slated to race this year’s world champion, Mary Moraa (Kenya), and silver medalist, Keely Hodgkinson (Great Britain), in a rematch of this year’s 800m world championship final.

A slew of 2023 international world champions are expected to compete in Eugene this weekend, including reigning 1500m/5,000m world champion and world record holder Faith Kipyegon (Kenya), two-time reigning 200m world champion Shericka Jackson (Jamaica), who has stated she will be attempting to break Florence Griffith-Joyner’s 200m world record from 1988, 2023 400m hurdles world champion Femke Bol (Netherlands), and two-time 5,000m world champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen, who is slated to race the famed Bowerman Mile as well as the 3,000m, where he will line up against three-time 10,000m world champion Joshua Cheptegei (Uganda) and 2022 U.S. 5,000m champion Grant Fisher.

NBC Sports’ Paul Swangard will call the event, joined by four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon, two-time Olympian Kara Goucher, and 2012 London Olympic decathlon silver medalist Trey Hardee. Lewis Johnson serves as reporter.


This Friday, Sept. 15, the second and final episode of NBC Sports’ docuseries, Untitled: The Noah Lyles Project, will premiere on Peacock and the NBC Sports YouTube channel. The new installment will take a behind-the-scenes look with unprecedented access at Lyles’ historic performance at the 2023 World Track & Field Championships in Budapest, where he won the world title in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay, establishing himself as the world’s fastest man as he enters 2024 and embarks upon his quest to win his first Olympic gold medal in Paris.

Click here for a preview of Episode Two, in which Lyles discusses his mental preparation for the 200m semifinal at the World Track & Field Championships, as well as the infamous golf cart collision that happened right before that 200m semifinal.

Episode One, which premiered in August and takes a behind-the-scenes look at the first half of Lyles’ 2023 outdoor season, is currently available on Peacock and the NBC Sports YouTube channel.
