Today, America raises its head high with pride and dignity. The reason? Meb Keflezighi; an Eritrean-American; simply came forward and elevated America's dream to its deserved place. Since 1982, no American won the Marathron. America was desperate, but, Meb Keflezighi came destined to do what he was taught to do earlier on. WIN, AGAINST ALL ODDS! A simple lesson he was taught from his roots that is!
Meb Keflezighi, a down to earth family person, 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist, 10k American Record Holder (27:13.98), 19-time USA National Champion; made history in New York Marathon on November 1, 2009.
In an all international NBC televised broadcasts, Meb Keflezighi made history. A history for America, but most importantly a big history for Eritrea.
