Quote Of The Day

"I was dead set against it until (Rupp) did such a great sales job. He said 'just give me the baton in second.'"

- Oregon's Vin Lananna on why he was smart enough to let Galen Rupp make history on Friday night at the NCAA meet by anchoring the DMR victory a little more than an hour after his sick 5k victory.

LRC Day 1 Men: The Incredible Galen Rupp!!! The guy who used to not be able to close out races now is a monster. He closed the last 800 of the 5k in 1:55 and then came back and did the nearly unthinkable - outkicking the milers, including Ulrey by .72, to give the Ducks the DMR win. Rupp had 0 NCAA track wins before Friday. Now he has two and he's going for an unprecedented triple on Saturday. His sick double had never been done before. Recap, results, photo links, video interviews above. Interview with Derrick fixed.
