RE: What do Kenyans think about Rupp?
That has to be an oversight. Followers of the marathon are not used to seeing Americans compete except for Meb on hard courses (NYC, Boston, Olympics). Meb didn't seem to have the speed to run 2:05, so not in consideration at most world majors with flat fast courses.
I'm no Rupp fan, but he hasn't had a bad marathon yet, beat some very good marathoners at the Olympics and Boston, and he does seem to have the potential to run 2:05 - remember his 10k PR is 30 seconds faster than Meb's. He's not the favorite but he's in the conversation.
