RE: Ben True's Improvement is Suspicious
As for True, I actually was talking to author Chris Lear about True today.

My comment was, "13:02 doesn't shock me. He was basically as good as Rupp in HS xc without even training. For years, I always wondered why he'd improved way less than Rupp."

It seems it just took True a while to adjust to being a full-time runner after skiiting which requires a lot of arm strength, etc.

The fact he could get 5th or whatever it was at Foot Locker without training is absurd.

Incredible natural endurance. He's also got great speed. True is probably naturally faster than Rupp. 2007 pbs at 1500: Rupp 3:43. True 3:40.
