Grant Fisher produced a superb run to take victory at The Ten in San Juan Capistrano, California on Saturday night, the US record holder kicking to victory in 26:52.04 with a 56.78 last lap.

“I mean to hit the standard, that was the goal and I got it done so it feels good,” Fisher said on the broadcast after the race. “It was the perfect race setup and a lot of guys did a lot of work, not including myself so I really appreciate them.”

“I think anybody in this race would rather get 15th place and run 26:59 than win and 27:01. So getting the time, that’s the game right now. This was a key step to get to Paris. I needed this in my pocket. So good to have it done, now I’ll focus on the Trials.”

Fellow Kimbia athlete Patrick Dever also produced a fine run, becoming the second quickest Briton in history at the distance when clocking 27:08.81 to finish 10th. Isai Rodriguez came home in 29:28.76.

Karissa Schweizer was in action in the women’s 10,000m and she impressed with a sixth-place finish in 31:04.80.

There was a trio of Kimbia athletes in action in the men’s 1500m, with Kieran Tuntivate leading the field home in 3:37.58, just ahead of teammate Thomas Ratcliffe in 3:37.87, with Evan Jager sharpening his speed by clocking 3:40.40.
