Rupp is favorite because he’s in his best condition yet for marathon, he’s not injured, he’s confident, and if the weather is poor— rain and cool - he should be even more the favorite as Rupp is quite comfortable in these conditions. Africans, not so much.

The two favored Ethiopian guys are saying they're looking froward to the tough conditions as they train in all kinds of weather. They feel its an advantage to them.

Regardless of whether or not Rupp or the Ethiopians like poor weather, who would admit to their competition right before the race that they expect to do poorly?
