He didnt suddenly get great, but he did recently graduate college.
(Rupp's) progression and consistency are perfect.
Rupp always is seemingly getting better. That is true.
I think the thing that surprises people the most is how he has gotten WAY faster in recent years at shorter distances.
He ran 4:01.8 in HS in 2004.
For years, he couldn't break 4:00. As recently as 2008, he was still a 4:01 guy. Sort of reminded many people of Ryan Hall - fast in HS but maybe he's really a long distance guy.
He finally breaks 4:00 for first time in 2009. Now 4 years later, he's a 3:50 indoor miler.[/quote]
You are freaking shameless. For 3 years you have linked to articles, interviews and training videos about the entire change and progression of Rupp's training and racing to first get better at the 1500, to develop his kick, and develop his sprint speed.
You are either stupid or you have a personal grudge against Nike, Salazar or Rupp that you won't admit publicly.
Not only have you linked to this entire transformation in his training -- you've had people post about it before you posted this post.
There have been threads on it for years.
You sound like YOU are on drugs.
...Maybe, just maybe, when Salazar says they didn't start to focus on this shorter stuff, and Rupp's kick, and his raw speed etc. until a few years ago...it was actually the truth, duh.
You are either the lowest of low and a true embarrassment to the sport.
