Gail Devers
I was pretty impressed with Gail Devers' performance last night in the 100 meter hurdles. It is amazing that she can still run like that at 37 and a half years old. I can't think of too many sprinters who have anything left on the dark side of 35: Linford Christie seemed to be competing in his mid to late 30s, and maybe Darrell Green, was still one of the fastest men in the NFL into his 40s.

As I approach 35, its nice to know that some of us who were born in the 1960s can still compete at that level.
