    Re: Rupp In Bowerman Mile at Pre Classic

    "He also surpassed the "A" qualifying standard of 3:34.90 for the Olympic Games at Athens in August."

    Is that time accurate for qualifying?

      In the artical, it says Rupp's coach, Alberto Salazar, said: "Rupp's eye is on the 5,000 in next month's U.S. Olympic Trials."

      Does anyone know in which race he plans to get a qualifying time?

        What's wrong with 'his' (Webb's) 3:33.70?

          The article is wrong. The "new" A standard is 3:36.20. It was changed by the IAAF in October of 2003. Even the IAAF admitted the previous standard was ridiculously hard.

                The article states Rupp is the most talented distance runner since Pre. In Oregon, or nationally? Even in Oregon I don't know if that is true. If nationally, what about a kid names Dathan a couple of years ago. Wasn't Chapa from Oregon? I know, its just PR babble.

                Interesting about Webb's post-Pre schedule. It sounds like he'll have 3-1/2 weeks of down time?

                Very interesting schedule. I'm sure they have something in mind but its a bit different. You'd think more racing would be in store to fine-tune before the trials. Maybe he feels the trials won't be a problem and a boost in training at that point is more important than more racing, keeping in mind he'll have to be sharp for the Olympics 7 weeks later. This sounds like he will more or less be "training through" the trials, rather than peaking for them?

                  He ran 13:55 to win the B Section at the Cardinal Invite early in May.

                    Yeah, but 13:48.00 is the "B" standard, is it not?

                      Chapa went to HS in Indiana.

                        And for those who don't remember, Chapa's HS (Hammond?) had that incredible year with 3 (yes 3) guys under 9:00 for 2 miles. How many decades will pass before that ever happens (in the US) again?

                          Galen Rupp has been labeled as the best runner from Oregon since Pre, but the past 10 years have produced many notable distance runners from the state of Oregon.

                            I assume the comment is limited to HS careers. Rupp has outdistanced that list as a HSer.

                              The article doesn't say why Rupp has switched from the 5k to the mile at the Pre, which seemed odd. I can only guess it's because El G and other world class milers might not be competing at this meet and Tom Jordan needed to make the Bowerman mile more exciting. Personally, I wish Rupp was in the 5k. A 13:42 would be more be exciting than a 3:59.
