Whitsett, NC (February 18, 2016) —The most decorated marathon runner in the history of the USA and has done it again; Meb Keflezighi, a dedicated CEP team athlete, is going to his fourth Olympics. Meb, who has become a household name in the USA marathon community, finished 2nd in the February 13th Olympic Trials in Los Angeles. He finished the race in a blistering 2:12:20 donning his characteristic knee-high CEP Run 2.0 socks through the finish.

“There is really no better athlete to have on the CEP team than Meb,” said Michael Potter, North American Director at CEP. “Meb is the real deal on so many levels; his athleticism is second to none, his running career is still booming into his forties, and his charitable work makes him an inspiration to many people on so many levels.”

At nearly 41 years old, Meb became the oldest American to qualify for the Olympics in the marathon category and is also the only athlete in history to win the Boston Marathon, New York City Marathon and an Olympic Medal combined. CEP relies on feedback from CEPro athletes such as Meb, to drive product development and remain on the cutting edge of what athletes need.

Said Meb Keflezighi of his partnership with CEP, "I am thankful to CEP Compression for their support over the years. I truly believe in the compression socks for training, competition and recovery."

CEP officially signed Meb to their team after learning that the marathoner was already using the company’s products without an official endorsement deal in place. Meb has since crossed the finish line as overall champion of the Boston Marathon, New York Marathon and several others wearing his tried and true CEP Compression socks.

CEP’s proprietary compression profile improves blood flow, reduces muscle soreness and quickens recovery time making it the perfect product for long distance runners. CEP is proud to support Meb in the 2016 Summer Olympics and beyond.

Congratulations Meb!
