Shalane Flanagan sets mark

Shalane Flanagan was pretty sure she'd run the 5,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials this summer. After all, she holds the American record and is a two-time U.S. champion in the event. Suddenly, the 10,000 is looking pretty inviting, too. Flanagan broke the American record by 17 seconds in her first 10,000-meter race Sunday night. (Raleigh News & Observer)
