Flanagan sets American 10K road record in Holland


HOLLAND, Netherlands -- Shalane Flanagan (Marblehead, Massachusetts) set an American record Sunday at the Tilburg Ten Miles in Holland, Netherlands.

Flanagan ran 31:03 for the road 10K Sunday, trimming three seconds off the previous record, set in 1990 by Lynn Jennings in Orlando, Florida.

Flanagan's previous best over the distance was 31:27 at the 2014 Beach to Beacon 10k, and the two-time Olympian now owns six American records (indoor 3000m, indoor 5000m, 10,000m, road 15k, women's-only marathon).
