World champion runner Noah Lyles says that having his younger brother on the team for this world championship makes it even more satisfying.

The 24-year-old American won silver in Tokyo but said he will be much happier with Josephus (also in the U.S. 4×100 meters relay pool).

By his side at these championships which are kicking off Friday in Eugene, Oregon.

It’s an entirely different situation from Japan because one thing is you’re back on home turf and another is you have your little brother here too so everything. missed out on in Japan .

I now have right here at these World Championships, she told reporters Thursday (in reference to her older sibling).

It really means a lot to me to share this experience of bringing my sister along too.

Lyles has proven himself to be one of the fastest sprinters in America, claiming his season’s victory at both the NYC Grand Prix and May Diamond League Meet in Doha.

Now Lyles is enjoying his competition with a younger but equally talented runner Erriyon Knighton – who Lyles was able to beat in Tokyo for third place.

A month ago, Lyle had beaten out Knighton in the National Championships- right after which Lyle had stormed off during a televised post race interview.

I’m sure he’ll come back stronger this time around, said Lyle when reporters asked him about it. And I’m not going to slack up either.
