The last time Noah Lyles and his girlfriend, Junelle Bromfield, participated in a championship together was the Family Gingerbread House competition. The couple made a habit of winning that contention, as this time it was their second turn. Eventually, the competition framed the Lyles family trying their decoration skill. Josephus Lyles and Noah’s mother were there to oppose Noah and his girlfriend from winning another insignia. However, that joyful moment flaunted the camaraderie between the world champion sprinter and his Jamaican girlfriend. In Brighton, the couple appeared to display camaraderie once again.

In the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, Noah Lyles holds the perfect stature of being a motivated winner. Last year, he started his wheels of wrecking records from the esteemed indoor event. However, this time as well, he’s looking to repeat the same. But his girlfriend, Junelle Bromfield, started the day with heartbreak. The Jamaican sprinter was at the 400m women’s event. But could only mark the fifth position in the final tussle

American sprinter Kendall Ellis won the race with 52.77 seconds’ timing. In that comparison, Bromfield took 53.60. That was quite a disproportionate performance from the 26-year-old athlete. Last year, she thoroughly hit the clocking around 51 and 52 seconds. In Gainesville, the former world indoor champion had registered the high-flying 51.85 in the 400m event in 2023. That timing was way better than Kendall Ellis recorded on Sunday evening.

However, for Kendall Ellis as well, the latest performance was not in line with her last year’s best time. But in uncapping the Olympic season, the recognition would help the American in the way. However, for Noah Lyles’ girlfriend, the crafting of a comeback story should be on the card as previously she had done that.

The record of a comeback from a heartbreak 

Junelle Bromfield’s loss in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix final cannot be compared to a loss she experienced before. But in the latter case, she had penned down a motivational lore to evade the anguish. Just before the Tokyo Olympics, Noah Lyles’ lady love had lost her mother to cancer. The grim situation was so deep that she couldn’t continue her practice regime for several weeks. But in the dearth of the gloomy days, the Jamaican had risen again and participated in the Olympic trial. Along with Shericka Jackson, she had claimed the bronze medal in the 4x400m relay event in the final in Tokyo.

Continuing the same symphony, in 2022, she earned the silver medal in the same event in the Eugene World Championship. After that, the World Indoor Championship gold medal came to Junelle at the same event. So, penning down a comeback story isn’t hard for her. Moreover, she has Noah Lyles to keep the momentum.
