It's pretty obnoxious to suggest nasty names for twin babies. Leave the kids out of your opinions about Rupp and Salazar. I wouldn't be surprised if he did name the boy after Salazar or Mo, at least a middle name. I did speculate in advance that with the Salazar influence and the fact that Rupp's wife was on bed rest, there was probably ivf involved here, hence, twins being much more likely. In any case, congratulations to the Rupps. Those are going to be some fast kids. And no reason he won't do even better with twins in the family. He actually gets an automatic hormone addition from being a father around newborns for this season; he will have more of a sense of urgency during his training and incentive to perform well for the kids; and in the European outdoor season and at championships in the next couple years, he will be well-rested because he won't be staying with the family. Having kids may very well calm him and have a beneficial effect on his confidence level.
Some truth here. Also, people suggesting that his sleep will be affected? Maybe a little, but doesn't Rupp still sleep in an altitude tent? I don't think the kids will be in there. My guess is that his wife and nanny will take care of all of this and let Rupp worry about the family business as usual. He'll just watch less soccer and play less video games in his down time than in years past, and spend it watching his kids learn to crawl and walk.
