When you think of Galen Rupp you think of America's best hope against the world at 10000m. Most people when they think of Chris Derrick think of one of the best collegians who never won a individual NCAA title; however, what most people fail to comprehend is that Chris Derrick at his age is vastly faster then Galen Rupp was at the same age.
* Chris Derrick is the AJR at 5000m not Galen Rupp
* Chris Derrick sports a faster pb then Galen Rupp at age 22 by over 10 seconds and a faster 10000m as well
not knocking Galen Rupp as he has shown he is a tremendous talent; however, Chris Derrick is being overshadowed by older compatriots but barring injury by age 25/26 (2-3 years) he maybe the one who brings U.S.A it's first Global title in over 35 years!
