In his case, it was warranted.

The pressures of breaking Ryun's record, his lame first year at Michigan, the heat he took for leaving Michigan and running for his high school coach, for being called a flash in the pan and an under achiever....

In his case, making the Olympics and finishing first (even after being called out by Stember) is a big statement. But he could have given the world the middle finger, peed on the finish line, and drop kicked Tom Hammonds and it still wouldn't have been enough.

This link has video of the yell. And his a$$ kicking last lap.

Alan has had big muscles ever since I've known him. He lifts, yeah...but he is predisposed to having big muscles.

Is anyone else amused by the though of Webb finishing his 1500, turning around and urinating on the finish line (preferably while Stember is finishing)?

Or maybe it's just me.

He would have been finished by the time Stember crossed the line.
