Did you watch the race? Rupp did all the work when the pace finally got serious. He tried to stretch out the pack and keep from having to out kick True, who showed a world class kick at the NY Grand Prix. It didn't work. True and Hill stayed with Rupp and used him to sling shot to the finish line.
Rupp has always had issues with getting tied up trying to kick on a 5k race. He is too much of a rhythm runner and has a hard time with a big kick.

Does he just have zero RACING acumen?
