Solinsky Smashes PB, Takes 6th at Bislett Games

Chris Solinsky sliced an incredible 16-seconds off of his PB, clocking a 12:56.66 in Oslo on Friday evening. Hot on the heels of his own American Record in the 10,000m, Solinsky approached the standing national record in the 5,000m, a 12:56.27 logged by Dathan Ritzenhein in Zurich in 2009; in Oslo, that record still fell, as fellow American Bernard Lagat ran 12:54.12.

With speculation over a possible AR performance running rampant, given Lagat’s pedigree and 12:59 PB, and Solinsky’s standout 26:59 performance at Stanford, the opening kilometer was reached in a very hot 2:32 — 12:40 pace for 5,000m. As the field in this Diamond League race continued to run positive splits — 2:35 and 2:38 to reach 3,000m — there was reason to doubt a record performance.

Vaughn and Carney Stand Out at Bolder Boulder

While Bolder Boulder race organizers could celebrate a record number of finishers in the annual 10k Memorial Day race, Brent Vaughn and James Carney stood out from the crowd in the elite race, placing 4th and 7th, respectively. Both athletes represented Team Colorado in the three-person team race, and with Vaughn finishing in 29:56 behind a trio of world-class Ethiopian athletes, Team Colorado took 2nd in team competition, beating trios from Kenya, Australia, and even the United States at-large. In the fourteen previous years of International Challenge competition at Bolder Boulder, no representative of Team Colorado had placed higher than 11th. As each crossed the finish line before a hometown crowd, the Boulder-area-based Vaughn and Carney became the first and second Team Colorado competitors ever to notch Top 10 finishes in a race that has routinely hosted Olympic medalists, World Record holders, and some of the best road runners in the world. Another Boulder-based athlete, Jason Hartmann, represented KIMbia and Team USA in 12th place, clocking a 30:35. In the women’s race, Jelliah Tenega placed 4th in 33:57, scoring for the runner-up team from Kenya.
