It's an extraordinarily sad state of affairs when you can come to this country at the age of 12 as a refugee, train as a gifted runner in San Diego junior high and high schools, attend UCLA as an incredible four-time All-American award winner, become a naturalized US citizen as you graduate college, compete in the Olympics and win a silver medal for the United States and finally become the first American to win the NYC Marathon since 1982... and still haveĀ people insist you're not an American?!
