Galen Rupp was named our 2012 Endurance LIVE competitor of the year. He came on to chat about meeting his long time coach Alberto Salazar, his training partner Mo Farah, and his Olympic silver medal at 10,000 meters.
The night before the finals in the Olympic 10,000 in London, coach and running legend Alberto Salazar felt confident enough to tell Mark Parker from Nike that his two athletes, Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, were going to take home the Gold and the Silver medals….and they did. Alberto came on the show to talk about the amazing athletes he coaches and how he uses both out-of-the-box training techniques and what he learned during his career to get the very best results.
Alberto Salazar is a true legend, first as an athlete and now as a coach. His stories from his three New York City Marathon wins, his Boston victory over Dick Beardsley and dealing with the great Henry Rono are fun to listen to. Lance Armstrong has also reached out for a little run coaching and Alberto shared some great insight into Lance’s running prep for triathlon.
