NEW YORK — Christian Coleman has made his mark on the indoor track circuit once again with a spectacular win at the men’s 60m final at the 2023 Millrose Games in New York on Saturday. The talented sprinter took the top spot with a facility record time of 6.47 seconds, leaving the competition in his dust.

The race was initially delayed after Noah Lyles was disqualified for a false start, but Coleman made the most of the third opportunity, blasting off the blocks and securing an early lead. With his strong start and powerful finish, Coleman held off the rest of the field to cross the finish line with a seasonal best time. – Read More: How to watch the Milo Western Relays 2023 LIVE!?

Jamaica’s Travis Williams came in second with a personal best time of 6.59 seconds, while Josephus Lyles, Noah’s younger brother, rounded out the top three with the same time.
