Seriously, how many word records does Rupp have, and how many national records?
Doesnâ€™t matter...he's a super fast non-Kenyan; a product of great genetics & hard, disciplined training, an Olympic medalist & National hero. Incredible things happen when you combine great talent with hard work & exemplary coaching...nothing new there.[/quote]
Rupp is a nobody compared to Nurmi or Zatopek, not even the shadow of them. Rupp is talented, yes. genetically the most gifted white distance runner ever? Not even close, PLEASE!
