Solinsky Sizzles Season Opener with UW Mile Win

Chris Solinsky at StanfordWith a wedding to plan and a marriage to start, it’s been a busy winter for Chris Solinsky — to the point where it might be forgiven if he started 2010 showing a little rust.  Yet a new house, wife, and home life seem to be agreeing with the Stevens Point native, as he ran 3:55.75 at the UW Invitational in Seattle, on Saturday.  Opening the season indoors, Solinsky defeated Galen Rupp by a little less than half a second.

His 3:55.75 is a facility record at one of the fastest tracks in the world; a PB of over a second, indoors or out; his first time under 4:00 indoors; and is just .11 seconds off the current world leader.
