My only question on all this eliteness questioning is….
What if an athlete has the talent to be an elite-level runner (more based on consistency as mike pointed out), but they're training is not right, so they aren't seeing the gains they should be?
Guys like this are a dime a dozen. I'll bet there is probably some guy out there who could probably run 9.7X without illegal assistance but for whatever reason (lazy, poor facilities, lack of good coaching, etc.) will never see it come to fruition.
