RE: What do you suppose is up with Rupp this season?

The PRs you list for those guys are interesting... but hell, was 12:55/12:52 really out of range for Rupp this year, especially after that fast indoor season?

That was kind of my point, like he is probably a 12:52-12:54 guy right now and placed where a 12:52-12:54 guy should have. Now he needs to become a 12:47-12:49 guy with a slightly better kick and he will be in the battle again for a medal of any color.

Though he did not threaten a medal, he handily beat Gebremeskel in the 10000m, and came back to beat Alamirew in the 5000m. Before the finish, nobody would have given him a chance against either one of them in those races.
