Subject: RE: Attention: Even if Alan Webb does not make the team, he will still run very fast in Europe this summer
I'm going to turn things around and take a different angle.
What if he never ran those early early races and just opened with a 3:38 for 11th place?
We wouldn't be looking at a progress angle just at the result.
What if that was first place against lesser runners instead of 11th against good runners? People would be even more excited.
Indoors this year, Manzano finished last in a mile race in 3:57.
His perspective was that a 3:57 isn't bad.
A few weeks later he won the USATF indoor 1500m title.
That should give the Webb fans some positive vibes.
One more thing on talent. I think a chronic achilles injury will diminish talent.
It alters the pop you have and hurts the range of your gears.
If Webb's achilles isn't what it used to be then his talent (or ability) isn't what it used to be.
If his achilles and other muscles and tendons are 100% recovered then his talent level can nearly be the same at this age.
