two guys who ran nyc faster than rupp ever has period, and you again say those guys wouldnt have beat ruppy poop either. dude won by 1 min, and 3rd place was 5 min back, you think he was maxing out the whole way? or running alone and trying not to get bored?
admit it you toss in all those guys into rio and rupp doesnt get bronze?
The "dude who won by 1 min"? Rupp beat him in the Olympics by 1 min.
No, Rupp is not Kipchoge, but he's capable of 2:05 in a flat, rabbited race.
