    Wow!!!! Great race, and I thoroughly enjoyed Mo Farah as an announcer.

    13:26 / 13:18 splits. He looked smooth, closed with 59.x/58.x, and Oxy is a distant memory.

    !st 4 runners under 27 min. Rupp looked in shape for a sub 26:40... Great run for him.

    I loved how he struck for home so decisively with 900 to go.

    Had he been pushed, there was definitely more there. Very exciting performance!

    And he's now the fastest 10000 guy in NOP, beating Farah's best by two seconds!!

    He looked TOO easy (as Mo pointed out in his "announcing" bit!), and looked ready for a time in the 26:30's.....maybe even high 26:20's in the right race.

    Would love to see him and Farah (and a few Africans) take on the WR!!

    Exactly. Stride or 2 behind Tanui (please correct me if I'm wrong here), dropped it into 6th gear and then he was gone.

    I think that he is a 26:3x guy at his best unless he can move to another level; not impossible but unlikely.

    Fastest time in the Western Hemisphere, but second fastest on this track to Bekele's 27:2x here a few years ago.
