Noah Lyles is currently on top of the world. The American sprinter smashed through all of his competitors to win not one, but three gold medals. The whole world is chanting Lyles’ name right now. However, amidst all the praise, his girlfriend pulled a shocker through her Instagram stories. 

Noah Lyles and Junelle Bromfield recently completed their one-year dating anniversary. The couple have a loving relationship and are greatly admired by fans. However, Bromfield created some murmurs around Sha’Carri Richardson.

The US and Jamaica have a salty rivalry on the racetrack. The World Athletics Championship is where both sides hit it all and strive for the gold medal. The world titles go through a change of hands between the two great nations almost every year. Noah Lyles and Team USA worked extremely hard to write their names as the winners in the Hungarian capital. Fans expected Bromfield to talk about the American goliath, Lyles, but she praised the runners in Canary first. 

Bromfield posted several Instagram stories congratulating team Jamaica and Shericka Jackson for her almost record-breaking 200-meter gold medal. However, there loomed a question mark that raised eyebrows when Bromfield did not congratulate Sha’Carri Richardson. Richardson, being at her immaculate best at this year’s World Athletics Championship, deserved nothing less of a praise. She won gold at the 100 m event in 10.65 seconds, leaving behind Jamaican ace duo Shericka Jackson (10.72), and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.77). Richardson also led her team to victory at the 4×100 m relay in 41.03 seconds, leaving behind the Jamaican team to attain silver with a speed of 41.21. All these victories by Richardson meant to receive a congratulatory wish. However, Bromfield conveniently skipped on doing so.

Bromfield is also a sprinter from Jamaica. In fact, she is one of their best 4×400 relay race stars. Bromfield led the Jamaicans to a bronze medal victory at Tokyo and a silver medal win at Eugene last year. Richardson and Bromfield go a long way back when Bromfield beat her at the Prefontaine Classic. In Eugene, Briana Williams ran 11.09 for eighth while Richardson was dead last in the nine-athlete field, running 11.14 seconds. The two last faced each other at the Meeting in Città di Padova, Italy in 2021.


Moreover, Bromfield also won the World Indoor Championships in 2022. While her support for her homeland shocked several fans, it is natural. World Championships represent one of the biggest competitive stages and every patriot cheers for their country with vigor. In fact, Junelle Bromfield also posted several stories for her boyfriend, Noah Lyles.
