Jan. 14, 2012

Olympic Marathon Trials Results

Bruin alum and two-time Olympian Meb Keflezighi punched his ticket to London on Saturday as he won the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston, TX. Competing in his second marathon race in 69 days, Keflezighi ran a lifetime-best of 2:09.08 to win and earn a spot in the Olympic Games.

Keflezighi won silver in the marathon at the 2004 Olympics Games. He became the first man in U.S. history to win both the New York City Marathon and the U.S. Olympic Trials. At the 2011 ING New York Marathon, Keflezighi finished sixth overall with a then lifetime-best of 2:09.13. He is also the oldest man to win the Olympic Marathon Trials (37 years old).

There were two other alums competing in the Trials - Drew Shackleton and Alex Crabill. Shackleton finished 35th in a time of 2:17.14, while Crabill was 52nd (2:20.17).
