RE: Allright Letsrun - Who wins, Ryan Hall 2007 or Galen Rupp in 2017
Rupp, no question.

Sure Hall had a great race and if you just compare the times they ran it could look like he would win.

But Galen Rupp has won 2 Olympic medals (Hall never did) and now a WMM (again, Hall never did). He consistently performs up to expectations, or at least has done so for the last 5-7 years. When was the last time he lost to an American at 10k or longer?

If it came to a head-to-head race, Rupp would do what it took to win. Which means sitting on Hall till the end and out kicking him. That is the only way that matchup would end. Rupp would not lead a step until the final half mile and then he would blow him away.
