Olympics — Keflezighi, Flanagan Win 2012 US Olympic Marathon Trials

running-advice-bugRyan Hall led much of the US Olympic Marathon Trials today in Houston, but it was Athens silver medalist Meb Keflezighi that took the win and the first position on the US Men’s Olympic Team. Keflezighi finished the close race in an unofficial time of 2:09:08, which would be a new personal best for him.

The other two members of the Men’s US Olympic Marathon team headed for London would be Ryan Hall who finished in 2:09:13 and Abdi Abdirahman in 2:09:47. Portland’s Dathan Ritzenhein came in fourth in a personal best 2:09:55. The top four finishers came in within one minute of each other. This will be one of the strongest US Olmypic Marathon teams in a long time, based on the amount of Olypmic experience represented by Keflezighi, Hall and Abdirhman collectively.

In the women’s trials, Shalane Flanagan takes it in 2:25:38, which will be a new personal best for her. Desiree Davila is second in 2:25:55 and Kara Goucher finishes third in 2:26:06. Amy Hastings is fourth in 2:27:17. The previous Olympic Trials record was Colleen De Reuck’s 2:28:25 finish from the 2004 Trials, so all four of the first women were faster than the old Trials record.

The race will be televised later today on NBC stations nationwide at 3:00PM Eastern Time. Check your local listings for exact times.

Talent on Display
The full strength of US Marathon running was on display here in Houston today. Among the favorites were some of the favorites runners in the world among both men and women. When we look at both the winners and the runner’s up, we see Boston marathon front-runners, Olympians and New York City Marathon champions among them. It was an impressive list of runners who had been intent on securing one of the spots to compete for the US in the marathon later this year in London.

Looking at the men first, winner Meb Keflezigihi had faltered a few years back, but has now returned to his earlier greatness. After winning silver medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, he didn’t make the team for Beijing. But over the past few years, he won the very touch New York City Marathon in 2009 and then ran a personal best there in 2011, a time that he would beat in today’s Trials by just a few seconds. Many people will be happy with Meb’s victory today, because as they say, “he’s got fans.”

Ryan Hall on paper would have been expected to win this race if we only looked at his personal best times. In terms of raw speed, he’s the fastest US marathoner in history. But his performances have been a little up and down the last couple of years. He tends to start races very hard, telling people before the race today that he “doesn’t like to run in back.” But since going “coachless” he hasn’t found his success from earlier in his racing days. Hall’s most recent stand-out performance was his 2:04:58 in the crazy-fast Boston Marathon of 2011. In Chicago later last year, he ran 2:08:04 showing his inconsistency at the moment. He’s got the speed and he’s still young at only 30 years old.

On the women’s side, everyone had been looking to Deena Kastor to win another Trials after her win in the 2008 Trials. But the young guns were coming after her. With the likes of Desiree Davila and Kara Goucher in the race, not all of the favorites were going to make the team. Desiree had run an outstanding 2:22:38 in Boston in 2011 and she was my pre-race pick to win, having run such a strong time this past April. But Kara Goucher was sitting on a 2:24:54 PR and Deena Kastor still held an astonishing 2:19:36 PR from back in 2006, meaning she could have had the speed in the tank to win.

Shalane was one of several Portland runners in the race, joined by Dathan Ritzenhein and Kara Gouchers among others. She is wicked fast, having been a major contender at the 10,000M distance and winning the bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics in the 10K. She’s raced primarily at the shorter distances and half-marathons, running the fastest time by an American in 2011 at the Miami Beach Half Marathon in 1:09:58. Her marathon debut at NYC in 2010 was a 2:28:40 which earned her second place that year.
