    as training improvements are made and with the advancements in health sub 4 minute miles will be commonplace someday, not just for africans, but other countries as well. i predict alan webb will still be able to run under 4 for the mile, after his 50th birthday. i once heard cerutty could run under 5 for the mile while in his seventies.

    Is it possible for a 45 - 50 year old man to run a mile in the range of 4:00 - 4:05? I am sure an African will do it someday.

    Given the state of US DT, is it possible that Wilkens or Powell could make the B q and make the team. Oerter almost made the the non team in '80.

    Colleen de Reuck maybe (wouldn't MAKE the team at 40, unless on the track in 10K). Turns 40 in April

    Ottey wasn't trying to make the U.S. team.

    Anything is possible. Merlene Ottey Made the 2000 Team at 40 Years old. She is still competing and next season she'll be 44 years old.

    She admit that she took the drug. Jacobs is the female version of Ben Johnson.

    There's the other reason a plus-40 marathoner might make it. The IAAF for some reason has decided to give free passes to marathoners who aren't truly world class. The new standards are an insult to real athletes in all other events who have to move heaven and earth to get an A standard. Pha!

    Check again. The Oly A standards have changed in the marathon. He already has an A standard, just needs to make the team.

    I agree Eddy Hellebuyck has a great chance to make our 3-man team, but he still comes up short as his qualifying time is only 2:12:47, and the O.G. "A" standard is 2:12:00. Regina Jacobs has a much better shot, pending the investigation into her alleged THG usage.

    One of the fogey marathoners might do it, but only because the U.S. sucks so badly in the event.
