beating out markos geneti, 2nd at reebok, in 7:44i, not too shabby at all.
i agree, a 3k matchup between rupp and fernandez would be pretty damn exciting, but i think everyone knows that fernandez has rupp's number. sorry, fernandez has the stamina and the speed.
great race for rupp though, better than what i thought he would've done. i think his pr in any 3k before this race was his american junior record 7:49. i see american distance running synthesizing nicely in the coming years, not that it hasn't been building to it in the past 9 years.
