Fisher stuns with American 10,000m record

Grant Fisher clocked a stunning 26:33.84 at The TEN in San Juan Capistrano last Sunday to take 11 seconds off Galen Rupp’s 26:44.36 American record in the 10,000m, which makes him the 7th fastest man in history.

Fellow Kimbia athlete Sean McGorty ran 27:18.15 in his debut to finish 4th, while Kieran Tuntivate was just behind, clocking 27:23.64. Patrick Dever set a big PR at 27:23.88. Lopez Lomong clocked 27:39.96, while John Dressel ran 27:57.51. Evan Jager was on 27:34 pace through 6400m but stepped off the track after being tripped.

In the women’s race, Elise Cranny ran an astonishing 30:14.66, just over a second shy of the US record held by Molly Huddle. Courtney Frerichs ran 31:23.13 for 8th in what was her 10K debut.
Cranny spoke to afterward.

Well done to all on an amazing night in California.
