Noah and Josephus Lyles are hoping to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this summer.
Noah and Josephus Lyles, along with their 4x100 meter relay team from T.C. Williams High School, are headed to the Arcadia Invitational in California this weekend as they continue their quest to reach the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Keisha Caine-Lyles, “Momager” to the nationally recognized track stars, is hoping to raise funds to help her sons reach that goal.
According to a post on the GoFundMe page set up by Caine-Lyles, Noah and Josephus will be competing for spots on the USA Junior National Team and the USA Olympic Team. The World Junior Team will be competing in Poland this summer while the USA Olympic Team will be competing in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
“We are excited about our goals but we can't do it without your prayers and/or financial support,” said Caine-Lyles in the post. “Your financial contribution will assist with paying for training equipment, massages, chiropractic care, nutritional support, airline flights, meals, entry fees and hotel fees.”
More than $4,800 of their $8,500 goal has been raised in the last month to help the Lyles brothers compete for spots at the USA Olympic Trials to be held July 1-10 in Oregon.
Some of the 2015 accomplishments for the brothers include: 2015 USA High School National Champion (400m); 2015 USA High School National Champion (100m, 200m); 2015 Gold Medalist at the JR Pan Am Games (200m); 2015 Silver Medalist at the JR Pan Am Games (100m); 2015 Silver Medalist at the World Youth Games (400m); and 2015 Bronze Medalist at the World Youth Games (200m).
