Former AR holder at the 10,000 meters, Chris Solinsky, in a copyrighted interview on FloTrack by Ryan Fenton, and posted full interview by Mitch Kastoff, announced that he was focusing on the marathon distance. Solinsky, a former UW Madison standout, surprised many with his fine debut at 10,000 meters in May 2010, when he became the first non-African male to break 27 minutes for the 10,000 meters.
