STANFORD, Calif. -- Tara Erdmann won the elite section of the Stanford Invitational 10,000-meter race on Friday while setting a new personal-record and running the fastest 10k time in the U.S. at 32:31.15. Erdmann's time was under the U.S. Olympic Track & Field "A" standard of 32:45, which automatically qualifies her for the U.S. Olympic Trials held this June at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.
Erdmann led 14 women with times under 33 minutes. Her first 5k time was 16:26, followed by 16:05 in the second 5k. Erdmann's last mile time was 5:05.
