In March of 2018, American runner Alan Webb was inducted into the National High School Track and Field Hall of Fame, in its inaugural class.
At 35 years old, Webb was one of the youngest inductees this year (the youngest male athlete). He graduated high school in his class of 2001. That same year, Webb was honored as the "High School Athlete of the Year" by Track and Field News.
Three years later, in 2004, as well as in 2005 and 2007, Webb won the national outdoor championships in the 1,500 meters. He holds the outdoor American record in the one-mile race, which he set on July 21, 2007, with a time of 3:46.91 seconds; moreover, he is the sole athlete in 17 years to run the mile faster than 3:47 seconds.
As an Olympian, Webb represented Team USA at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, in the men's 1,500 meters, and he also made two world championship teams. Webb competed for Nike, and he retired from track and field in 2014 after the Millrose Games.
In this induction class, Webb joined such distinguished athletes as Jim Ryun, Bob Mathias, Jesse Owens and Steve Prefontaine.
