Solinsky finished two seconds and four spots back of Kenyan Mark Kosgei Kiptoo, who won the race in 12:53.42. It was the second sub-13 minute performance this season for Solinsky, who ran 12:56.56 at the Oslo meeting in June, just behind countryman Bernard Lagat’s American Record-setting performance of 12:54.12 in the same race.
Also in Stockholm on Friday, American 10K road racing champion Ed Moran ran a personal best 13:20.25 in the 5,000 meters, finishing 13th in the 18-man field. Galen Rupp, Solinsky’s Oregon Track Club teammate who was aiming for a sub-13 minute performance, did not finish the race.
