Whitsett, NC (April 13, 2015) — CEP Compression, the leaders in performance compressions socks and sportswear, is pleased to announce an enduring partnership with Meb Keflezighi, Olympian, 10,000m record holder, and defending Boston Marathon Champion. Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest runners of our time, Meb has trained, competed, and conquered leveraging the durability and performance benefits of CEP Compression products for many years, including during his historic 2014 win of the Boston Marathon.
At the top of his game at nearly 40 years old, Meb is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon and an Olympic Medal. A graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Meb’s record also includes four NCAA championships, 22 National Championships and a place on three United States Olympic teams.
“There is really no better athlete to have on the CEP Team than Meb,” says Brandt Furgerson, Director of CEP North America, “Meb epitomizes grit and determination, and has an unparalleled running career to show for it. Being a veteran athlete, he also knows what works; top-quality compression products are definitely part of his strategy.”
CEP Compression is rooted in nearly a half-century of German design and innovation in medical compression technology. Competing in a field with a multitude of look-a-likes and pseudo science claims, CEP Compression prides itself upon rigorous third party verification and independent peer-reviewed studies affirming the improved benefits of CEP Compression on Arterial Delivery and Venous Return.
Meb Keflezighi, on why he sticks with CEP Compression, said, “I’ve been running on CEP products for the last 4 years. Quite simply, they work and I love them. The last several years of my running career have been magical and I wouldn’t change a thing about what’s helped get me to this point.”
