Liles, a sprinter who has overcome asthma and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, became the first man since Bolt to win three world titles, marking the birth of a new sprinting emperor.
[Noah Liles/USA: “We all came together and did an amazing job, and there have been a lot of times in the past where the U.S. hasn’t won (because of botched baton touches), but we did it.”]
