Alan Webb Headed to Oregon

Alan Webb, the American record holder for the mile, is headed to Oregon to work under distance coach Alberto Salazar.

Prefontaine Classic
MY COMMENT: Webb has been in a slump going on 2 years now, so it's time for a change in scenery. Clearly Salazar thinks along the lines what others have been speculating for some time- "He won't touch a weight for the first six months. He has to lean out." I have just 2 questions- what did Webb weigh when he ran 3:46 and what does he weigh now (his bio on the USATF website lists Webb at 5'9" and 145 lbs.)?
