U.S. Marathon Teams For Olympics Set, Led By Meb Keflezighi And Shalane Flanagan

The 2012 U.S. Marathon Olympic Trials in Houston on Saturday feature two ridiculously fast races. In the men's race, Meb Keflezighi ran a personal best -- his second in 69 days -- to win in 2:09:08, beating Ryan Hall, Abdi Abdirahman and fourth-place Dathan Ritzenhein. All four went under 2:10, which was completely improbable coming in.

In the women's race, the top four finishers beat the previous Olympic Trials record. Shalane Flanagan edged Desi Davila for the victory in 2:25:37. Kara Goucher finished third and Amy Hastings held on for fourth.
