this site if full of haters. they pick n chose some runners as their chosen heros and others they dump on, Rupp is the latter.
Rupp could pull a Lasse Viren and set WR in each event and folks on here would give him s hit.
He's one of the best distance runners the USA has ever produced, racing against deep fields of runners few of the past ever had to deal with.
Give the man props- he's a monster.
I think the hate stems from the fact that he’s so much better than these guys who devote all their free time to the empty pursuit of being a fast hobby jogger.
They have so much of their self esteem tied up in their running that it’s sobering for them to realize they couldn’t beat Rupp even if they got to ride on a motorcycle the first 25.2 miles.
