LRC Galen Rupp Will Not Try and Break the World or American Record in the Mile Next Weekend

Rupp's world record attempt is off and instead his focus is on competing well in the mile this weekend in Boston.


Bernard Lagat has the U.S. record at 3:49.89 and Salazar says, "I can't predict Galen will break the world record, but we're not going to put all that work out there for 3:49. He might as well go for it. He might die a little going for 3:48. But we would rather go for it and fail than not go for it and just try to break the American record." Salazar also said that this is the first race of the year Rupp will be fully rested for.
