Holy cripes! Didn't realize he was so close to Bekele's WR. Give it some time - only 5 seconds over 8 laps... that's nothing. Go GR!



he's close to the world record, but don't take that as being close to Bekele. Bekele CAN clearly run sub8 if he wanted to.

Go Rupp!! Congrats

I don't know about gay, but he did sound like a prepubescent boy. I guess when you're going sub 8:10 you can damn well talk however you want, but I don't think anybody can deny my claim is correct.

Of course we had to hear about his 'cold/sinus infection' during the race, which was just an insurance policy if he didn't get the record. It's always something with this guy. Hell of a run, but he always has allergies/sinus BS.

What makes this all the more amazing, on top of his 4:08-4:01 splits. His first lap was 34.38!!??? I'm all for conservative starts and negative splitting, but that first lap might have cost him 2-3 seconds. If he had gone out in 31, he might not have closed quite as fast, but he would surely have run faster. All of his other splits made sense. Running 8:09 is amazing, running it with a 34.38 first lap is out of this world and makes his run truly world class.


Yes, so he must have run his last 3000m in about 7:33 - 7:34 Correct me if I'm wrong.

First 200 in 34 + 19 more yards then 3000m
8:09.75 - 34 - 19 more yards.

That first 200 split included the 19 more yards. But that doesn't really take anything away, 7:35 is still legit.

8:09.75 - 34.4 =7:35.3 That is fairly impressive.
