Meb Keflezighi, 39, of San Diego, CA, lengthened his remarkable stay atop the U.S. marathon rankings with a victory at the 2014 Boston Marathon, becoming the first American man to win the race since Greg Meyer in 1983. Similarly, in 2009, he became the first American since Alberto Salazar in 1982 to win the New York City Marathon. Keflezighi’s sixth-place finish in 2011 was his sixth top-10 finish at the race.
A three-time Olympian, Keflezighi captured the silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Marathon and took fourth place in the 2012 London Olympic Marathon, the only top-five performances by an American man in the event since Frank Shorter’s silver-medal performance in 1976. Keflezighi, a former American record-holder at 10,000 meters, has won more than 20 national championships in track and field, cross country, and road racing.
