Live updates, results for Sunday

He plays

Noah Lyles doesn’t like his only Olympic medal, the bronze he won in the 200 meters at the Tokyo Olympics. On Sunday, he will take another step toward adding Olympic gold to his trophy.

Lyles is the main event Sunday at the Olympic Track and Field Trials, with the men’s 100m final scheduled for 10:49pm ET at Hayward Field. He will make his debut in the semifinals scheduled for 8:48 PM ET.

He told reporters after his first run that his goal was to break 9.8 seconds in what is considered his second best event (the 200 meters is his best event). Other finals scheduled for Sunday include the women’s 400m, men’s 3,000m steeplechase and 200m steeplechase. Pole vault for men, javelin throw for men, and hammer throw for women. The semi-finals of the women’s 800 meters will also be held with the participation of American star Athing Mo.

Kendall Ellis won the 400 meters from track eight.

Ellis sprinted down the home stretch and created a short distance between the competition to win the event with a personal best time of 49.46.

Georgian Aaliyah Butler took second place, recording a personal best of 49.71 seconds. Alexis Holmes secured the final Olympic spot as she won the battle for third place, setting a personal best of 49.78.

At 16 years old, Quincy Wilson competes against adults nearly twice his age in the Trials. But the huge gap in age and experience does not affect him. The 16-year-old broke his own under-18 world record in the 400m in the semi-final by crossing the finish line in a personal best time of 44.59.

Wilson finished behind Bryce Dedmon (44.44) and Vernon Norwood (44.50), but his time was good enough to advance to the final.

“Today I came here, I gave it everything I had,” Wilson told NBC. “I knew the last 100 meters were going to be tough. I’m competing with them. I’m grateful to be in this moment.”

Instead of starting the 2028 Los Angeles Games with swimming, track and field will start first, with swimming last. It is the first time since the 1968 Mexico City Games that the schedule has been changed.

The track will be held at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home of the USC football team.

“Athletics is our flagship event,” Los Angeles 2028 President Casey Wasserman said. “We started off with a bang.” —Lindsay Schnell

Athing Mu won the 800-meter dash in the semifinals Sunday night at Hayward Field, using a tremendous kick to outpace LSU’s Michaela Rose, advancing to the finals scheduled for 10:32 p.m. ET on Monday.

Defending gold medalist Mo ran 1:58.84 in the first round of the event (her personal best is 1:54.97). Kate Grace was second in 1:58:97, and Rose, who won the NCAA title earlier this month, was third in 1:59:00. The top two finishers in each round, as well as the next three fastest finishers, advance to the finals.

“This is exactly where I thought it would be, especially with who was in my race, specifically,” said Mo, who posted the fastest time in the semifinal. “I’m really happy that I won like this because I know the final will be at this pace or faster.”

In the first fast semifinal, Courtney Lindsay and Fred Curley both ran times under 10 seconds to advance to the final. Lindsay won with 9.88 and Curley was right behind him with 9.89. Both times were wind assisted.

The second semi-final heat was faster. Noah Lyles ran a wind-assisted 9.80 to win. Kenny Bednarek earned the other automatic qualifying spot with a 9.82.

Christian Coleman won the third heat of the semi-final, scoring 9.86. Brandon Hicklin’s 9.95 was good enough for second place.

Lyles’ younger brother, Josephus, did not advance to the semifinals.
