EUGENE (USA): Galen Rupp’s name didn’t show up on the 5000 m entry list for the Prefontaine Classic. But as oregonlive.com writes, Nike Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar said that he and Rupp would wait as long as possible before deciding whether to run the 5000 or 10 000 at the Pre at Hayward Field in Eugene. Whichever race he chooses, “Galen will go all-out,” Salazar said.
