Actually, Meb Keflezighi was born in Africa

Born in Eritrea, the horn of Africa, but came to the US when he was 12 years old. He is a legitimate world class marathon racer and took Silver at the 2012 Olympics in London. That being said, he was fading in the race and was lucky to win giving up almost 90 seconds in the last few miles. American now I suppose, but from Africa originally. Now his Sketcher shoe endorsement will go way up. It's commercial time for America.
