Kiptoo 4:02.65, Rupp 4:03.09
2nd fastest HS duo ever, and we're disappointed!!!

Rich Gonzalez' coverage - Talk about it in TrackTalk's National forum
by Rich Gonzalez, Editor, DyeStatCal
     So this is what we have come to? A pair of teens digging deep into the well of the all-time prep mile performance lists, and actually eliciting a sense of disappointment in the aftermath?
       Oh where, oh where have the days of frenzy surrounding a head-turning sub-4:05 effort gone...
       They've gone by the wayside -- as the youth distance-running resurgence continues! . . . More

The hastily arranged race with little advance publicity drew a good crowd to Lincoln High School in downtown Portland.

Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight was present and bought a "Stop Rupp" t-shirt from DyeStat TrackTalk member Ryan McCune (goloxc), who sold the shirts from the trunk of his car at the Oregon state meet and here -- which is exactly how Nike got started many years ago.

A special race has been arranged in Portland OR Thursday evening (7/8) to try to expand the most exclusive club in high school track: runners of a sub-4 minute mile. Galen Rupp of Oregon, Shadrack Kiptoo of New Mexico and Stuart Eagon of Oregon will be supported by world class runners. The race is at 9 pm at Lincoln High School in Portland, and admission is free.

Rupp ran 4:01.8 in the Bannister Mile at Nike World Headquarters May 6 and won the 5000m at the USA Junior Nationals to qualify for Team USA at the World Junior Championships in Italy next week. Kiptoo is the national 2-mile champion both indoors (9:00.30 at Nike Indoor Championships in March) and out (8:45.44 US#9 all time at AOC Raleigh last month). Eagon, whose mile PR is 4:11.45, ran an 8:16.74 3000m US#3 last week in Victoria BC.

Here are the runners in tonight's mile: Joseph Mwai, Joseph Koskei, Ryan Woods, Robert Vermillion, Jim Sorenson, Stuart Eagon, Galen Rupp, Shadrack Kiptoo, and Ryan Ponsonby.

Only four US high school runners have broken the 4-minute barrier in the mile: Alan Webb 3:53.43 in 2001, Jim Ryun 3:55.3 in 1965, Tim Danielson 3:59.4 in 1966 and Marty Liquouri 3:59.8 in 1967.

Topeka All-Star Relays
Jared Huske, a senior next year at Highland Park Topeka, won four events Tuesday (7/6) in the Topeka All Star Relays -- 10.73 +2.7 100m, 21.72 +3.5 200m, 13.56 +1.6 110H US#5, and 52.29 400H US#3.
