Chris Solinsky: American Record 26:59.60 10,000m
« on: May 02, 2010, 05:35:05 AM »
All the pre-race attention was on Galen Rupp's record attempt and Rupp did go under the record but by only 3 seconds.

Meanwhile, Chris Solinsky went under the record by just over 14 seconds to become the first American under 27 minutes.

Congratulations to Solinsky on a great run. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for the 2010 season.

Why dink around? Go for it, be the best. It is worth whatever risk there is even if you fall short. You will be better.
