Former Olympic 400m hurdles legend Moses announces comeback.: Aged 48. Now thats commitment - given the state of the event, I wouldn't be surprised to see him qualify for the Olympics next year either. Which comebacks stick out most vividly to you? Oldtimers still proving they can mix it with the young uns?

I think this is nuts.

Anyone have the Vegas line on this?

Are you allowed to use a walker in the Olympics?

That's what the hurdles are for. Are they going to have to have to make the starting gun extra loud?

I can't wait for him to trip at the Olympic Trials and scream this. Still, good luck to Moses. A fast old fart is better than a slow young buck.

I know this means absolutely nothing to anyone else here, but if Moses can still hit a 13 step stride pattern at the age of 48 - well, Lord love a duck. He should be able to get that Trials qualifying time, after that, who cares?
