Galen Rupp will skip Miracle Mile in Vancouver
Fresh off his national record 8:03.67 3000m in the Kajacks International Classic, Central Catholic Portland OR sr Galen Rupp was set to return to Vancouver BC Thursday (7/1) to run in the Miracle Mile against elite international competition. But word from Portland is that Rupp will defer his quest for a fast mile until later in the summer. He had two hard races recently in the Kajacks 3000m and the Junior Nationals 5000.

The Miracle Mile Gold Edition of the Harry Jerome Classic, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the famous Roger Bannister - John Landy race at Vancouver. The Harry Jerome web site says:

"The Gold Edition will feature an international field of competitors,
including representatives from Commonwealth countries Australia, New
Zealand, Great Britain, Kenya and Canada in celebration of that historic
1954 race that remains one of the great sporting contests to have ever been
held in Canada.

"Fifty years ago Australia's John Landy made an ill-fated glance over his
left shoulder as rival Roger Bannister surged past on the right side to win
the Miracle Mile in 3:58.8.

"Kenya's Elkanah Angwenyi ran 3:54.52 to finish third behind young American
phenom Alan Webb (3:50.85) at the recent Prefontaine Classic in Oregon. The
Kenyan may well be the favourite in the Gold Edition mile.

"But look also for another young American sensation seeking to dip under the
four-minute mark in the tradition of former American miling greats Jim Ryun
and Steve Scott and, more recently, 21-year-old Webb. Galen Rupp, 18, a
senior at Portland's Central Catholic high school, comes into the Jerome
meet with a personal best of 4:01.8 for the mile and will be seeking a
sub-four-minute time for a new best. "

Rupp, coached by former marathon great Alberto Salazar, came close to sub-4:00 when he ran 4:01.8, best in the US this year and US#8 all time, in the special Bannister Mile at Nike World Headquarters May 6. Last Friday (6/25), Rupp won the USA Junior Nationals 5000m in 14:16.21 over Josh McDougal and Foot Locker cross country champ Matt Withrow at College Station TX.

Victor Gras 3:45.19 1500m US#1
Belmont MA senior ran fourth in the Boston High Performance series Saturday (6/26), taking over the season lead from Galen Rupp, who ran 3:45.3 en route to his US#1 4:01.8 mile in the Bannister Mile at Nike World Headquarters, Beaverton OR, on May 6.

Galen Rupp's 8:03.67 breaks US record
Portland OR's Galen Rupp broke the US high school national record for 3000 meters Tuesday (6/22) with a time of 8:03.67 at the Kajacks International track meet in Vancouver BC. The old record was held by John Trautman NY (8:05.8 in 1986). Rupp moved up from seventh on the all time list in Jack Shepard's HIGH SCHOOL TRACK annual (8:10.42 last year), passing such runners as Dathan Ritzenhein 8:08.78 and Steve Prefontaine 8:07.9. Dave Frank reported that Rupp was at 5:51.5 with two laps to go before tiring. His lap splits per Frank were 63.2, 66.5, 61.8, 63.2, 63.8, 65.9, 66.2, and 33.0 (200 meters). Rupp is entered in the 5000 meters at the USA Junior Nationals in College Station TX Saturday night along with Josh McDougal NY, who beat Rupp in the New Balance Games 2-mile in New York in January and ran 8:08.34 for 3000m June 6 at the Boston High Performance series, US#5 all time until this week. Adding to the mix at Jr Nationals is Matt Withrow, Foot Locker Cross Country national champion last December.
Rupp finished third in the Kajacks race:
1. David Galvan RGC 7:57.09
2. Joseph Mwai KENYA 8:01.84
3. Galen Rupp CCHS 8:03.67*

Craig Miller just misses adding sophomore class record to his national freshman class record in the mile. He looks ahead confidently to next year. His toughest competition could be his twin brother, Brad, who was slowed by injuries this year.

Arrhenius curse?
Anders Arrhenius, father of the throws champion Arrhenius brothers of Utah, sends the following message about injuries to all three sons:
"Listen to this: Leif has had the cast on for five weeks and has two more to go. Nik has broke the tip of his ulna bone in the wrist and has a light cast on it. Today we found out that Dan has been throwing with a broken foot since before nationals and he is in a walking boot. It's a curse on the Arrhenius family this year."  --- Anders Arrhenius
