This podcast was originally posted 27 November 2020.

We are reposting 27 Feb 2021, in honor of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials marathon, which was hosted in Atlanta, GA.

Galen Rupp won the men's race, as he had in 2016. Galen was the most relaxed that I have seen him in a long time. He was open, he was

thoughtful, but most importantly, he has communicated his desire to compete in the next Olympics. With a bronze, and silver, is his next Olympic medal a color

suggesting gold? We shall just have to wait and see?

Galen Rupp is the #Socialingthedistance guest this week.

Galen Rupp was a quite good athlete at Central Catholic in Portland, Oregon. I saw him win the

Nike Border Clash. The first time I saw Galen race was when he was a junior and running the

AAU Junior 5000m, where he took second. David Frank, the Central Catholic coach, had called

me at home and said I needed to meet him at SJCC to see this guy who is "the real thing".

I like Galen Rupp, but did not interview him until the Nike Border Clash that next Fall.

I have seen Galen Rupp in his Olympic events (2008, 2012, 2016) and WC (2007, 2009, 2011,

2013, 2015).

My thoughts: Galen Rupp is one of the finest American and global distance runners in modern

athletics. His ability to battle at 1 mile to 10,000m in the past, and the marathon now should not

be underrated.

Galen Rupp has a well developed sense of humor and a student o the sport. The guy is at his best

when he is in battle in the ends of races.

Updated Feb 15, 2021

Posted October 10, 2021

On Feb 13, 2021. Olli Hoare put it all together, winning the 1,500m in 3:32.35, a new Aussie indoor mile record.

This is the inteview that we did with Ollie in October 2020. Ollie said then that Dathan was getting him into shape.

And that he did!

Oliver (Olli) Hoare is an Australian professional runner and part of the On Athletics Club, coached by Dathan Ritzenhein. From competitive swimming to running, Olli's athleticism led him to a spot on the University of Wisconsin track & field team.

He was the 1500m NCAA Champion in 2018 and an 8 time All-American, and 9 time Big Ten Champion over cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field.

We enjoyed inteviewing Olli. We also like his Badger connection. He was enthusiastic about his new club On Athletic Club. We wish him the best of luck and look forward to seeing him compete in 2021.

I met Martyn Rooney about 5 years ago. I had known his racing over the past decade. A 4x400m relay athlete who has competed in British relays over the past 14-15 years, Martyn brings home the medals in most global battles. A thoughtful observer of the sport, Martyn Rooney sees Tokyo 2021 as a big Olympic opportunity.

He was a blast to interview! Thanks Martyn!
