Scott, Cranny scorch to fast times over 10,000m


A host of Kimbia athletes were in flying form at the Big Ten event in San Juan Capistrano in California on Saturday night, with Marc Scott leading the way with a massive personal best over 10,000m. His winning time of 27:10.41 secured the Olympic standard and moved him to second on the British all-time list for the distance. Just behind, Grant Fisher posted a remarkable 27:11.29 on his debut at the distance, making him the fifth fastest US athlete of all time. Back in fifth place, Kieran Tuntivate clocked a massive PB of 27:17.14, the fourth fastest ever by an Asian athlete.

In the women’s race, Elise Cranny was highly impressive when kicking to victory ahead of Bowerman Track Club teammate and fellow Kimbia athlete Karissa Schweizer, their times of 30:47.42 and 30:47.99 making them the sixth and seventh US athletes to break 31 minutes and putting them third and fourth respectively on the US all-time list.
