Two-time World Cross-Country champion Craig Virgin generated some heated debate when he took to his Facebook page after Galen Rupp's American two-mile record run and said among other things, "What is Galen taking or doing ... that is giving him such amazing recuperative/restorative powers?" Virgin called for more transparency in the legal supplements/medications athletes may be taking. LRC spoke with Virgin on his comments and with Galen Rupp's agent Ricky Simms about Virgin's comments and the calls for more transparency.
