Meb Keflezighi Gets Married

Olympic silver medalist Meb Keflezighi of Mammoth Lakes and San Diego, Calif., wed his fiancĂ©e Yordanos Asgedom, last Saturday in Tampa, Fla., at Christ the King Catholic Church.  

The ceremony, which took only slightly longer than Keflezighi's 2:09:56 marathon clocking at the ING New York City Marathon earlier this month, was conducted entirely in Tigrinia, the official language of his native Eritrea.  Keflezighi became a U.S. citizen in 1998.

Asgedom, a Client Manager and Asst. Vice-President at Bank of America, plans to relocate from Tampa to San Diego where the couple will live in Keflezighi's primary residence there.  He also owns a home in Mammoth Lakes where he does his heavy training at high altitude.

Keflezighi, 30, is the U.S. record holder for 10,000m (27:13.98, 2001) and the former U.S. 20-K record holder (58:57).

Mary Wittenberg, CEO and President of the New York Road Runners; Mike Long, Elite Athlete Coordinator for Elite Racing; Bob Larsen, Keflezighi's personal coach; and Matt Downin, an elite marathoner were amongst the attendees at the wedding ceremony.  

Later that evening, over 350 people attended a lively reception held for the couple at the Hyatt hotel in downtown Tampa which featured traditional Eritrean music and dance.
