RE: RUPP goes home DEVASTATED
Just read the Runner's World article talking about how Salazar had Rupp doing LESS weights after finishing a disappointing (for him) 5th last year in the WC
"Salazar explains that last summer, after Ruppâ€™s disappointing performance at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, Salazar determined that the runner was carrying too much bulk and muscle in his upper body. â€œIt was restricting his stride,â€ Salazar says. â€œHe couldnâ€™t achieve full extension. So we basically stopped doing upper-body strength work. Galen has gotten much more fluid, much more flexible.â€
â€œBut he hasnâ€™t lost any power,â€ McHenry is quick to add. â€œHeâ€™s actually attaining more forward thrust with each stride.â€"
Welp, guess that didn't work for the 10K. On to next Sunday and the 'thon.
Btw, 5th place in a WC or Olympics is still pretty damn amazing.
To those criticizing Rupp for "ONLY" finishing 5th in the 10,000, please feel free to post your medal position from a prior Olympic Games (not Junior or Special or AAU either) in the 10,000.meters. Oh, wait.
