Galen Rupp is like Drago in Rocky. Access to all the latest gadgets and not inspiring work hard story. He just happens to be competing under the USA team
Rupp seems like a shy, awkward, nerd. he's goofy and cheesy, he's not a robot. He's probably been "coached" to focus on running and not to be personable for interviews or at least chooses not to being the spotlight. He certainly works hard and he certainly has better results than every other american distance runner. his mile pb is half a second slower that centro, who is a gold medalist....
any one of us would use the technology and resources available to him if we could. come on.
running and his wife and 3 kids are his only priorities. Mo Farah is more personable but leaves for months to go to Africa and leaves his family behind. who is better?!
dude ran 13:37 in high school. none of us can relate.
