At least this discussion, unlike the previous ones, is taking place on the right board. Alan Webb is history :-P

"Alan Webb is history"

So was Marion Jones for 5 years. Then I saw she ran a 22.16 in Europe in the back pages of the sports section. That was one of those hair-raising, jaw-dropping moments I remember well, like when Princess Diana departed from us. (Obviously a bit of a track and field fan[atic])
"She's baaaccckkk!!" Wait a while longer to say never.

There's a BIG difference. Marion didn't run track for a few years, concentrating on basketball. It's hard to run fast when you don't run at all. Webb, on the other hand, has been trying, but failing. Webb MAY still break through - these things are largely unpredictable - but based on his last 2 seasons, you can't EXPECT him to do it. If he does it, it will be success against the odds.

"Marion didn't run track for a few years, concentrating on basketball"

Not quite. Here is a list of some of her NCAA results, I don't know if it is complete:

1994 4s)NCAA 100
1994 6)NCAA 200
1994 2)NCAA LJ
1995 4)NCAA LJ
1995 11)USA LJ
1994 5)NCAA 4 x 100 [2]
1995 5)NCAA 4 x 100 [2]

Hardly what you'd have expected from her after her high school years, regardless of basketball (which she played in high school too of course).

Jones competed only sparingly in 1995 and didn't compete at all in 1996 before exploding back on the scene in 1997.
