    Re: Webb...

    Do some of you actually enjoy track. Alan Webb is one of the most talented and exciting milers to come on the scene since Steve Scott. All you whiners and haters need to get a life.
    And to the dude talking about Alan Webb needing to be a front runner to be great, I think you have watched one too many Prefontaine movies.

      Re: Webb...

      we all should applaud webb for the job he's done on the track.

      validation this year is making the Olympic team.

      as to athens itself, getting to the finals would be a success.

      I don't believe any of us thinks he's quite ready to el g et al...

      getting into aposition to race for a medal is enough for me!!

              Webb got a little icing on the IAAF cake:

              << 21-year-old American Alan Webb, who lowered his PB to 3:33.70 in Hengelo, continues his impressive, if brief European tour after clocking a PB 1:46.53 in Seville’s ‘B’ race on Saturday. >>

                I was hoping for a 1:46, the good part was he won his heat, even though it was a B heat.

                ostrava tomorrow should be a very nice test, simulating OT by having this 800, followed by a 1500.

                getting race sharp, ostrava followed by pre, he's well raced for the trials.

                  He's also listed on the start list for Bislett on Friday in the 1500m.

                      I just really hope he's leaving something for later in the summer. Can't blame him for wanting to run when he's in such great shape (and after two down years of frustrating injuries) but the year is just starting and the important meets are still a ways off.

                        Some more IAAF icing here:

                        "...and the emerging US star Alan Webb."

                          Re: Webb...

                          Can you imagine how excited Webb must be when he wakes up at a hotel in Europe, gets ushered away to a fantastic track meet, sees a boatload of great athletes and realizes, "Hey, I am a part of all this!"

                          Some things the NCAA can:t buy, for everything else there is ...

                          ______________

                          I posed the above question earlier today. Now I wonder what Alan Webb will think about tomorrow when he awakes and is not only just a part of "it", he is the world-leader!

                            At the next meet, it will be the other way around!
