The Alan Webb Story - USATF.tv

Published by

USATF Alan Webb mini-documentary available exclusively on USATF.tv

INDIANAPOLIS — Thirteen years ago Alan Webb broke the 4-minute mark for the first time. From that time until now, he has set the American Record in the Mile and showed he can run very well over many different distances - ranging from the 800 to the 5000. Two weeks ago at the Millrose Games, Alan took the track as a professional runner for the last time.

USATF.tv chronicles the final weeks of Alan’s professional track career and takes a look back at the remarkable accomplishments of a then-teenage Webb as he navigated the ups and downs of a professional track career and starts his transition into the triathlon circuit.

In this mini documentary, fans gain insight into Alan’s thoughts about his career, if he has any regrets, and what is next for the fastest miler in U.S. history.

USATF.tv was launched in 2013 and serves as USATF’s official portal for online broadcasts of meets and events.  

Watch the trailer above and see the full mini-documentary on USATF.tv.

This was the best video I've ever watched. I cried for him because I know that I would be so distraught if I retired from the mile. My heart goes out to you Alan and I wish you luck with your tri-Athlons. You are the greatest middle distance runner in my eyes

This is truly an inspirational story! I wish him the best as a triathlete.

Great video! Where is the 5 lane track with the forest in the middle of it? That is so cool! I want to run on it!

The track is on the Nike Campus in Oregon, which is an incredible facility!

I had a lot of good memories in Track and Field, but the one I often tell the most and am most excited about, it being the only other American to finish in the American Record Mile with Alan Webb. Wish you the best Alan! :) It was an Honor.

Alan, you are a true American hero. Thank you! I can't wait to show this video to my son. Even if you never run another step you've already done more for the sport of running in America than you can ever imagine. Please know that you are loved and respected in the running and racing community.
