RE: Is Rupp the most genetically gifted white distance runner ever?
Zatopek definitely was a freak of nature, which qualifies him to be one of the most genetically gifted whites ever. My vote for Nurmi is simple: he was a beast. The guy set 22 world records ranging from the 1500 to the 20k. Not to mention that in some of his races he won with little recovery during the same day and he was monk with his training. Never beaten in cross country and the 10k. Compared to the other whites mentioned in this thread, they are not even close to Nurmi's accomplishments and raw talent (like shooting a freight training with a pellet gun). More respect for the Flying Fin is much appreciated.
