Boston Marathon 2014: Meb Keflezighi, UCLA alum, wins men's marathon
The Pac-12 runs Boston.
For the first time in 31 years, an American man won the Boston Marathon on Monday as UCLA alum Meb Keflezighi crossed the finish line in 2:08:37, 11 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Wilson Chebet.
An American man hadn't emerged victorious at the world's most famous marathon since 1983, when Greg Meyer won the race in 2:09:00.
Keflezighi was downright dominant during his time in Westwood, taking home four NCAA championships in indoor and outdoor track competition. During the 1996-97 season, Meb cleaned up on the podium, earning national titles in both the indoor and outdoor 5K, the outdoor 10K and the cross-country championship.
