Let's be honest. Mebs body of work is way better than Rupps. Rupp has won two og medals because of slow times and week competition. Meb has faced tougher competition
Meb benefited from a crazy man tackling the 1st place runner in the 2004 Olympics. The only reason he won the Boston Marathon is because all the other runners assumed he was old and washed up.
I'm still a big fan of Meb despite these facts.
