There are lots of top guys missing. It's a good race, not a great one.
I never understand the Rupp bashing for the 5000. The race is not all about Rupp. There are lots of good runners to watch, like the new Ethiopian or Koech,etc. Moreover, it is not Rupp's best event. Some guys run 2 events and do not do as well in the second event. He does pretty well but he is much better at the 10000. I doubt he will PR in his first race of the season. He may PR again. I think others have done so when older than 29. But ,please, stop making every race he runs a bash fest. It's tedious,
