|Subject: ||RE: Attention: Even if Alan Webb does not make the team, he will still run very fast in Europe this summer|
he's also had a mile that is equivalent to a 3:29. I'm not sure how you don't see a 4.5 second drop in the 1500m to 3:38 over 2 weeks as pointing to him getting back into good shape (i.e. real low 3:30s). If it had taken him 2 months to go from 3:43 to 3:38 then you'd have a point, but it took 2 weeks, which is nothing! He's got several months left of the season. I'd say the over/under for May is 3:35.50.
Also if you think talent goes away, well, that's a weird thought. Talent only diminishes with age, and 29 is not old. Once your body has done something or performed to a certain level it is not all that hard to get near that level again even after a break of several years, unless you're already over 40 because your athletic potential is already waning every year at that point.
