Noah Lyles based off PR's could hypothetically have done the 100-200-400 triple at states, but then again I doubt even he could pull that off and be able to hold off Morgan or Josephus in the finals. It's just too tiring of a triple to even seem possible to me

@Joe_Jasper in theory he could but that isn't factoring in Mustaqeem who will be running both races and Morgan and even his brother! Being the favorite on paper in all three is impressive but actually winning all three is something very difficult. I know few Olympic athletes could ever do that since the finals over lap so much. The 200-400 double is already tough enough.

To win the 400 , 800 , and the 1600 that would be a real triple crown win this would take a great runner. But the sub 4:00 mile is still the greatest thing a high schooler can do.

@knmcdaniel you really think sub 4 is the best thing they can do? Don't get me wrong I think it is it a huge accomplishment but I tend to stray away from just putting a number on things like that. In my opinion it would be more impressive if a hs guy went 9.99 then 3:59! Now that hasn't been done.

I think a high schooler breaking 2:00 in the marathon would be pretty impressive...

@vamilesplit yeah to actually pull it off would be near impossible, especially factoring in other talented runners and prelims/semis, which is all the more reason it is one of the hardest accomplishments to do. If there is anyone in va that could do it, it would be N. Lyles though

Winning the fantasy draft, with my daughter leading the way, while edging out Nolan Jez (The Commish). Now that's my triple crown!

If we take this in the context of the horse racing triple crown which is one race that is 1 1/4 miles the second 1 3/16 miles and the last being 1 1/2 miles long then the true triple crown of track and field would be winning the 200, 800 and 1600 in one state meet. If you want to make it really interesting then add in they would also have to win the high, long and triple jumps at this meet as well.
