RE: talent = times and championships
Yeah, saying that some of the African athletes aren't young/teenagers merely because they look old is a poor argument. Physical maturity varies greatly from individual to individual, and nearly all of the athletes that are good when young are early bloomers. Yes, look at Webb - he looks much older than he is. If we were to base age only on how someone looked, people would say Webb isn't 21 or 22 but 31 or 32. There are definitely some athletes out there that are older than they claim, but that argument has no validity.
