    Wow, a Webb message back from the past.

    Nathan and his 1:46.00 PB got beat by a couple of guys
    >with 1:45.xy PBs. This is a sub-par performance how?


    Not to mention the fact that he just defended his 800 indoors at the NCAAs.

    Does anyone know how Webb's recovery is going.

    What are his plans this fall.

    It is amazing but Alan Webb has not run faster than a 3:58 in the last two years!!

    Pyrah? Pyrah? You're kidding right? Might was well hope Jamie Harris comes out of retirement. Both are lost causes.

    Are Canadian milers gaining a upper hand on their US counterparts? Actually, Sullivan is basically carrying Canadian miling all by himself.

    When is anyone from North America going to break a 3:50 mile. This current crop of US distance runners is invisible on the international stage.

    The US national championship mile race was a disgrace.

    Lets hope Jason Pyrah can get in shape before the next Olympic games. At least he made an Olympic final. I am glad Krummenacker is showing sense by switching over to the 1500 after this year.

    Also, Seb Coe ran 3:29.77 (albeit it was on the Rieti track, considered by many to be short - many of the performances set there over the years have been suspiciously good).

    '92 Olympic champ Fermín Cacho from Spain ran 3:28.95 in 1997. Cram ran 3:29.67 in 1985.

    While we are on the subject who are the fastest non-africans over the middle distances, and how quick have they run. Is Cram still the only sub 3.30 man.

    Sullivan's 3:50 mile PR is faster than Kru's 3:54.x mile PR. This makes Sullivan faster. "Could have" doesn't work in Track.
    Sullivan's 1500 PR is also faster than Kru's 1500 PR. 3:31:74 Kru 3:31:91

    Kevin Sullivan is the fastest miler .

    I am talking about the press primarily.

    I think you're confusing message boards with the press.

    I have no feelings good or bad about Women's track. I admit US women distance runners are better than their US male contempories. This is really not news to anyone.

    The press is bias towards male athletics. Why is Alan Webb getting more press than our world class women milers?
    Wouldn't you say Jacobs and Hamilton had a better season than Webb?

    >the least.

    Allright, name me a male sprinter that does credit card ads. Name me a male trackster who has been on the cover of ESPN Magazine. Name me a male distance runner that the AP has done a lengthy bio on within the last 2 months. Change those "males" to "females" and you get Marion Jones, Marion Jones, and Regina Jacobs. I seriously doubt both parts of your claim -- the press DOES care, and you DO have something against women's track.

    I can't use my real name. The CI....ooops.

    Got to keep quiet.

    I have nothing against women track, but the press certainly doesn't care in the least.
    I am waiting for the first women to break a 4 minute mile.
    When that happens everything changes.
