Two-time Olympic runner Anthony Famiglietti (1996), was born in Port Jefferson and grew up less than a half-mile from Patchogue-Medford High School. Anthony’s athletic ascension started in high school with two conference and county championships and New Your State Championship, and continued at the collegiate level at Tennessee where he attained all-conference honors. In 2000 he won the World University Games in China and went on to become a six-time U.S. Champion with wins in the steeplechase, 5K, 10K, and 15K, and has run some of the fastest time in U.S history. Anthony lives in Mooresville, NC with his wife of eight years and their three year old son. This spring will mark his final season as a professional.
