UCLA Great Meb Keflezighi To Run ING New York City Marathon

Sept. 8, 2004

2004 Olympic Games men's marathon silver medalist and UCLA great Meb Keflezighi has announced his intention to run the ING New York City Marathon 2004 on Sunday, November 7.

Keflezighi finished just 34 seconds behind the winner, Italy's Stefano Baldini, in 2 hours, 11 minutes 29 seconds. His medal is the first for an American male at the marathon distance since 1976, when Frank Shorter claimed the silver at the Montreal Games. Keflezighi will continue to follow in Shorter's footsteps as he becomes only the second man to medal in the Olympic marathon and run the ING New York City Marathon in the same calendar year.

Keflezighi's Olympic teammate Deena Kastor also will compete in New York after winning the bronze medal in the women's marathon in Athens (2:27:20).

Keflezighi will toe the line with an outstanding American field at this year's ING New York City Marathon, including 3,000m and 5,000-meter national record-holder Bob Kennedy as well as fellow Olympians Dan Browne and Abdi Abdibrahim.
