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.
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*

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

Webb named USATF Athlete of the Week
Alan Webb's 3:50.85 mile at the Prefontaine Classic last Saturday, fastest ever by an American on US soil, earned him USATF Athlete of the Week honors. John Schiefer called it "the most impressive American mile performance in history."

Wrapping it up . . .
We near the end of another season. The last state meet (Minnesota) is this weekend, and the post season meets march along -- New England Championships, Golden West, Senior Spotlight (IA, IL WI), AOC Raleigh, USA Junior Nationals. We will cover it all, and we will build the DyeStat Elite to more than 5,000 top 100 nationally ranked athletes and relays. Finally, we will announce Nike Athletes of the Year, the most dominant athletes of the 2003-2004 school year. And then we start gearing up for cross country, which will be a turning point season with the addition of the Nike Team Nationals to the mix. [John Dye]
