The 10000 was BARELY run last year, 27:28 seems tough, I still think we get 3 in Kipchircher, Korir, If Chelimo runs a 10000, Ben True ran a good 5000 in 2018 that indicates je can hit that standard and a few more will emerge.

For reference according to vdot(I know how some of you hate vdot, I'm just using it as a measuring tool, so calm down) a 27:28 10000m is equal to a 60:21 half marathon. Which 60 Men did last year and 2 American men did last year. A 60 minute half should qualify one for a olympic 10000m.
