NEW YORK — Meb Keflezighi will compete in the New York City Marathon this fall, and he’ll be joined by Olympic speedskating gold medalist Apolo Anton Ohno.
 
The New York Road Runners announced Wednesday that Keflezighi will compete Nov. 6 along with defending champions Gebre Gebremariam of Ethiopia and Edna Kiplagat of Kenya.
 
Keflezighi will run his seventh NYC Marathon. He hopes to qualify for the marathon at the 2012 London Olympics and use the race as training ahead of the games.
 
The 35-year-old Keflezighi won the New York City Marathon in 2009, the first American to do so since 1982. Ohno will be running his first marathon.
A record 140,000 runners applied for the NYC Marathon. The Road Runners say the 2010 event had an economic impact of $340 million.
