RE: Allright Letsrun - Who wins, Ryan Hall 2007 or Galen Rupp in 2017
Wow, this is a very one-sided matchup imo. For starters, Rupp is there to win in every race he enters and a "bad day" for Rupp is "only" finishing 2nd-5th in a stacked field. His kryptonite is guys who can both run sub-13 and kick like a miler. Heart and consistency are never an issue for Rupp. Hall would need to be having one of his best days to even be near Rupp by mile 20. And even then, he needs to pray that Rupp fades. Rupp wins 90% of the time, Hall maybe 10%.
Hall is awesome. But it is unfortunate that so many letsrunners continue to deny that Rupp is simply a marathon beast who is still in his prime. It is quite troubling tbh. It makes me wonder if these same posters think Wanjiru is old news since he never went under 2:05. And fwiw, Wanjiru >>>>>>>>>>> Rupp.
