Diamond Dash: Galen Rupp sneak attack on American 10k record Friday night?

Late last night (4am EST), Ron Bellamy of The Register-Guard reported that Galen Rupp has switched from the 2-mile at the Prefontaine Classic on Saturday to the star studded Mens 10k on Friday night, which is being dubbed “Distance Night in Eugene.”

Is this a last minute sneak attack attempt on the American 10k Record that Chris Solinsky set in an astonishing 26:59 at the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational in 2010? I don't know, but Friday night just got a whole lot more exciting. This weekend's Prefontaine Classic looks to be the best in years and I for one can't wait to see the drama unfold live.

The event is free to the public and will be streamed live (for free) on (aka Runnerspace)
