Solinsky Takes 3rd at US Indoor Championships

Chris SolinskyIn the altitude of Albuquerque, Chris Solinsky took third place in the 3000m at the USATF Indoor Championships.  With a championship on the line, the early work was tactical and much of the field remained in contention until late, Solinsky included.

In the end, the finishing speed of double World Champion Bernard Lagat was too much to match and Lagat took home the title in 8:12.60.  Solinsky would cross the line barely a second arears, in 8:13.85, fellow Portlander Galen Rupp just four-tenths in front of him in second position.

The third-place finish wrapped up Solinsky’s indoor season, and he will return to his preparations for outdoor.
