It was a great day for Americans. Rupp said he hoped to run 2:05-6 but his goal was to win and never said he was going to push the pace. He ran a very smart race and did what he needed to win.
Racing is great. It doesn't always have to be a time trial. I am critical of Rupp for many things, but today he did what he needed to do and was brilliant.
