Webb is one of several American runners represented by former Irish mile great Ray Flynn (89 sub-4:00 miles) who now owns and operates Flynn Sports Management.

Webb's mile record makes him the eighth fastest man in history. In addition to his mile triumph, he is also the world record holder for the 1500-meter run, at three minutes and thirty seconds. Coached by Scott Raczko, Webb gained valuable experience competing at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Antrim where his ancestors lived in the early 1800s. His relative Joseph Antrim Webb immigrated to Philadelphia in the 19th century.
