About Galen
Galen Rupp continued his domestic dominance of men's distance events in 2013, winning his sixth USA Outdoor 10,000m title in addition to a runner-up finish in the 5,000m. At the 2012 London Olympic Games, Rupp delivered the best moment for American distance running since Jim Ryun's 1,500m silver medal in 1968. His silver in the 10,000m was the first American medal in the event since Billy Mills' gold in 1964. That performance came on the heels of a pair of Olympic Trials records for Rupp in Eugene in the 5,000m and 10,000m. A high school prodigy, Rupp matured into a six-time national champion, an American record holder and Olympian. His time for the Oregon Ducks was highlighted by a sensational senior season where he won five NCAA titles and the inaugural Bowerman Award, which signifies the men’s and women’s national track and field athlete of the year. While at Oregon, he joined up with teammates Matthew Centrowitz, Andrew Wheating and Shadrack Kiptoo-Biwott to set the outdoor collegiate 4x1-mile relay record of 16:03.24. Also as a Duck in 2009, he became the first person in NCAA history to win the 3,000m, 5,000m and the distance medley relay at the same indoor championships. Outdoors the same year he won the NCAA 5,000m and 10,000m championships. In just 2007 alone he was a seven-time NCAA All-American (twice outdoors, four times indoors and once in cross country). Married to Keara Rupp.
