Noah Lyles sends message by raising gloved fist at trials

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Sprinter Noah Lyles raised a gloved fist before the 100-meter final at the Olympic track and field trials. He would not make it to the medals stand, the way Tommie Smith and John Carlos did in 1968. But the starting line might have been the first of several opportunities for the 23-year-old sprinter to spread his message. In what went down as the first notable demonstration of the track trials, Lyles made a subtle gesture, wearing a black glove with no fingers on his left hand, and raising his fist when he was introduced before the race.
