Not sure if that has been linked, but here is a video where AlSal claims Rupp is doing 75m in 8.4s. Occurs right around 2:00. 2:30 ish also looks to be pretty all-out running.

Just posting it here so in case people want to see it and those that know sprinting better can analyze what is actually going on.

Salazar is standing some way from the finish line, so he has to guess when Rupp is passing the start and finish and this is not a reliable way to time a sprint.

However, I do think Rupp can run a flying 100 in well under 12 seconds. He is faster than Farah. With Rupp's speed and endurance he could give the 1500 and mile records a good go if he was so inclined, but he would have to be as commited as El Gerrouj was and I don't think psychologically he is that determined.

I would like to see Rupp run some more 1500s this year. It'd be cool if he ran the 1500 at nationals in an off year.

I would like to see him run 1500's against the best in the world, how fast could he go? At least 3.28 in the right race.

Looked lightning-fast. Also looked/sounded wind-aided.

How should a 5k/10k guy be able to run a 3:28? Not even the best 5k/10k guy ever (30 seconds better in the 10k!)did manage more than a 3:32.

Galen is by no means a bad runner, but hes just not a 1500 runner. If he was, then he would have won a medal in this event and not the 10k.

Rupp is one of the fastest finishing 10,000m runners ever. How many guys have closed high-class 5000/10000 races in 52-53 like he has? How many can run under 26:50 as well?

These guys come to mind:

Bekele
Farah
Rupp
Geb? (never closed a race under 54 to my knowledge)
Kipchoge

Talk about ruining an otherwise useful video with the music overlay.

Wonder if the mask will return this spring.

Guys ready? Rupp can beat Centro at 10k by a lot, and 5k by a pretty good margin. Centro ran 1:48.xx in Europe like 2 times before he ran his 3:31.xx PR about 3-4 weeks later...

Rupp clearly is faster now than his super old 1:49 PR. I'd bet he can crack into the 1:47-low range.

If Rupp still did his exact same training but focused on a short taper or freshening for a 1500m, I bet you he could run 3:30-low in a fast wabbitted race.

Bekele was capable of 3.29 in the right race. Rupp has more speed, 3.28 at least. But being in the right race makes a big differnence, so the best 5000/10000 guys tend to run around 3.32 in a good race with potential for faster times.

Pretty sure that he closed pretty fast at times. If I remember correctly, he closed his Atlanta OG victory with as fast or faster a last 200 than any other race that did not start with blocks (i.e., only faster closings were in the 200/400/...). It was tight with the 800 but not that tight. The prior 200 was not blazing, but it was at pretty good pace.


As for 8.9 for 75 meters, I was a mediocre distance runner and could run 12.00h 100m with training flats. Add 3.1 for the first 25 meters and you get 12-flat, and there is no way he is going to do 3.1 for the first 25m of a 100m.

Yeah Rupp is probably amongst the fastest closing 10k guys in history (of those who have fitness to compete at a current OG medalist level...~26:45).
