^^^ He claims he recently started lifting weights and he credits it with his sustained success as he has gotten older...

That spotter though....

He handles that weight pretty easily...  Although, to be fair if she was spotting me I think I could easily squat 1000lbs.  Or maybe get distracted and get injured.  One of the two for sure.

He attributes yoga towards his long athletic lifespan as well. Being flexible would logically help in the avoidance of muscle tears and strains. In one of Michael Johnson's books he talks about how he always used to get injured a lot and it wasn't until he took gym work and stretching (stretching in particular) seriously and accomodating time for it, that his body started becoming more resiliant and injury-free.

nice. do you know what kind of stretching (specifically) he was into? or was it just stretching through yoga?

The peak for world class 100m sprinters seems to be late 20s/early 30s.
Lewis 9.86 @ 30
Bailey 9.84 @ 29
Surin 9.84 @ 32
Gay 9.69 @ 27
Gatlin 9.74 @ 33
Fredericks 9.86 @ 29
Linford Christie @ 33

At the amateur level I think a lot of people peak in their late teens/early 20's because they give up on the sport since it's hard to find coaches/people to train with and injuries. The injuries are the number one factor. To improve in sprinting you've got to build up your power. To build power you've got to build speed, which requires more volume and intensity, which increases the risk of injury. Unless you're naturally durable, which most people aren't, it requires physiotherapy and a lot of extra time spent on top of sprinting to remain injury free (weights for strength, stretching for flexibility, physio for rehab & injury prevention). The majority of people in their 20's don't have the time or resources ($$$ for physio) to commit to that, particularly when all of that commitment over the years will lead to them shaving tenths of a second of their 100m. That's just the reality of it.
