The 2016 Rio Olympics-Up close and personal from Tracy Sundlun and Meb Keflezighi
In this past summer’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Tracy was the Head Manager of the U.S. Men’s Track & Field Team and Meb ran the Marathon. Tracy will share with us a few highlights of his experience at the Olympics, and Meb will tell us about his race, his 4th Olympic experience, all in the context of his incredible unique life story.
Meb is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon and an Olympic Medal—impressive feats for someone who had never run a mile until middle school. A graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), his record also includes four NCAA championships, 22 National Championships and a place on three United States Olympic teams. None of these achievements came easily: only his resilience, determination and faith led Meb to prevail following some of life’s most challenging and heart-breaking circumstances.
