Great addition to the discussion! Thanks!
You must be talking about a different Jorge Torres, because the one that this thread is about has a PR of 3:41.
But seriously, we care about him because he ran in the Olympics and the World Championships, as well as several World Cross Country Championships. He also won NCAA Cross Country and Footlocker Cross Country and was the first male freshman to qualify for Footlocker. He may not be on the level of a Galen Rupp, but he has had a long and distinguished career.
Also, this is a free country and forum (mostly), and someone can start a thread about a 4:30 guy if they want too.
