Alan Webb wins Life Time Marquee sprint triathlon


Alan Webb, the fastest miler in U.S. history, performed exceptionally well in the Life Time Marquee sprint triathlon over the weekend, winning the event with a time of 1:03:01.

Webb spent most of the triathlon battling training partner Chad Hall:

“I’ve been training with Chad and the USAT guys here in Phoenix, so I kind of knew what to expect from them,” said Webb, “When I saw Chad right behind me on the first turn of the bike, I was like, ‘oh, man.’ I knew I was going to have to work hard.”

As you probably recall, Webb made his shocking retirement from track and field earlier this year. It appears he’s settled well into his new athletic discipline, telling Triathlete he’s “excited to see” what his future in triathlon running holds.

Webb did not say when his next race will be.
