Matt Tegenkamp and Chris Solinsky qualified to the 5000m finals at the World Championships in Berlin last night! Everyone in the KIMbia family is immensely proud and super pumped for Matt and Chris to battle it out for a medal on Sunday at 10:25am Eastern Time. As a fan, you are a huge part of that community, and all of the athletes truly apprieciate your support. To show their appreciation, Matt and Chris want to give back by offering one fan a piece of their USA Track and Field gear that they are wearing in Berlin. Also, the lucky winner will have the option of having it autographed by the KIMbia guys in Berlin.
Here’s how it works: Log into your facebook account and go to the KIMbia facebook fan page. At the page, share your well wishes on behalf of your personal running community. Whether that is your high school team, college team, running club, or shoe store, just make sure you get your team’s name out there and make sure we know they are supporting Matt and Chris in the 5000m final (ex. “On behalf of the St. Xavier High School Cross Country team, good luck Matt and Chris! Beat Bekele!). Once you have posted your message, get as many friends as possible to “like” your comment (facebook lingo, if you don’t understand, put your landline phone down and get with the times!). The commenter with the most “likes” by the end of the 5k final will win a special piece of Team USA gear (Don’t worry, it’s not a sock).
Most importantly, though, tune into the 5000m final this Sunday at 10:25am Eastern Time here and scream yourself hoarse as Matt and Chris chase down a coveted World Championship medal!
