As stated in one of early threads "Rupp will destroy Chelenga" it is now becoming even more clear that Rupp is as fit as I suggested after this week's Regionals; sub-27:30 shape, if not sub-27:20 shape. My prediction for NCAAs is as good as confirmed, and anybody who believes Chelenga will be competitive and within 10 seconds of Rupp is a dreamer ! Chelenga was just 24 seconds clear of Bobby Mack in Regionals, and did not look anywhere as close to impressive as he did 3 weeks ago over 8K. 10K is a different race, and without question, an early, fast pace by Chelenga at NCAAs will not be the case, as he will be concerned about Rupp's fitness and how he is peaking. Physically and mentally, Chelenga is at significant disadvantage !
