The “Fast Lane Lifestyle” podcast, hosted by Powell on his YouTube channel, featured a sit-down interview with Noah Lyles. During their sports-related conversation, in a specific segment, Powell asks Lyles about his upcoming documentary (which has already dropped now).
To this, Noah Lyles replied, “I’m just coming to too many situations where there are not enough of our stories being told, and I’m a firm believer in making sure that everybody gets their story somewhat told.” He then makes a reference to Marvin Bracy and how he made a comeback after struggling on the track. Bracy used to play football initially, and until he transitioned to track and field to pursue a new career, he didn’t have the best of starts in his athletic career as he had to go through some significant injuries. But, he came out of these setbacks bravely and won several titles later.
Lyles also added that Bracy was dealing with injuries and was barely making it to the track, and then finally he got his due. Lyles’ docuseries, “Untitled: The Noah Lyles Project,” premiered on August 18, 2023.
