Quote Of The Day
“I had never met or spoken to Galen Rupp in my life. … Because of its timing and the headlines I was reading like everyone else at the time, this was not a road I wanted to go down. To be honest, it was just easiest to turn it down. I’m actually – as crazy as this sounds – really proud I did not, however. And I’m also well aware of what comes with that. I think for both of our sake it’s best we were strangers; he needed a clean slate. I took a long time to think about this and got to ask Galen some hard questions. … What is Galen accused of? And I honestly mean that; we should have to answer that question. Association? Where did we become so sure of this story around him? We should really care to get this right, for any athlete. If Galen Rupp is found to violate the rules of our sport, I’m the first one out, and he knows that. For me to step forward in this, I would have to believe there is more worth exploring here. And that’s what I hope to call attention to, that [if] someone who has never met this person, with way more to lose than to gain, can still agree to work with him, maybe we should revisit what we’re so certain of. What I found out by getting to know Galen was that there was much more going on than the picture portrayed of him, and I wish the world knew that. I have never seen someone more all-in in my life.”
