    Re: Ages of the top-100. (Men )

    I see a mean age of 25, which brings up an interesting question that's been the subject of discussion here before. What is the physical peak of an athlete (tho there may be a difference between the sexes)? I've seen the number 29 bandied about. That peak can be held for X number of years (or even new PRs achieved), depending on training and personal genetics (M Ottey skews all the numbers!!!!!).

    Unlike the other pro sports, we often see our best and brightest quitting before their peak, because the $$$$ ain't there.

    Caveat - not all athletes peak at the same time, so the #29 is a top of the bell curve kind of thing, though I dearly suspect the peak falls off rapidly after 29 for most folks.
