Chris Solinsky- Biggest Ever Under 27 Minutes

Chart showing body mass of all runners who have broken 27 minutes for 10,000 meters from The Science of Sport

Interesting article comparing Solinsky to the size of others in the exclusive sub 27 minute club. Chris is the 32nd member. The average weight of the other members is 55.6 kg (122.3 lbs). Solinsky weighs in nearly 40 pounds heavier at around 160. Remove body weight from the calculation for V02 max (ml of oxygen/kg), and imagine the total liters of oxygen at maximal running speed he must be able to process! The Science of Sport
