Meb Keflezighi came to the United States as a 12-year-old refugee from the African nation of Eritrea. Now he's known as Marathon Meb, and with good reason. At the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, Meb became the first American man since 1976 to win an Olympic medal in marathon. And in 2009, he became the first American since 1982 to win the New York City Marathon. Having just won the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon with his best time ever, Meb Keflezighi is surely approaching a high in a career of highs. It's just a matter of time until he attempts to make history again at the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.

Meb attributes his success in part to the science and expertise of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) Sport Performance staff. They pay tremendous attention to the small factors that can make the difference between winning and losing at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Feedback from hundreds of athletes has confirmed that one of those key factors is sport psychology. My supporting Meb, you'll be helping the USOC fund the Citi Sport Performance Fellowship in sport psychology. This fellowship will help future Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls get ready for competition by utilizing the most advanced technology in biofeedback, neural training and mental preparation.
