Galen Rupp to run at UW meet on Saturday...

Doug Binder of the Oregonian reports on the paper's track & field blog that University of Oregon senior Galen Rupp (far left/photo by Paul Merca), the US Olympian at 10000 meters and reigning NCAA cross country champion, will run at Saturday's UW Indoor Preview at the Dempsey Indoor facility.

Binder writes, "Rupp has been working on his speed and might double Saturday in the 800 meters and the mile -- events he has rarely competed in since high school. The races represent an opportunity for him to lower two personal bests (1 minute, 59.7 seconds and 4:01.8) that have remained frozen since he was at Central Catholic High School."

The article also states that the Ducks' other Olympian, 800 meter runner Andrew Wheating, will not run Saturday.
