The point I don't understand is why people even mention the "American" collegiate record - why does anyone who is serious about the sport even care? The Collegiate record is the only one that should matter to a Collegiate athlete (27.08 by Chelanga in this case). Anything else is being petty and "nationalistic". Derrick lost to another Collegian (Levins), whether he broke a silly "record" like Rupps really says a lot about the American mindset, and it's not very flattering.
Nationalistic? You do know that the N in NCAA stands for National don't you?
