Abdi, nicknamed the “Black Cactus,” is a native of Somalia who became a U.S. citizen in 2000, ten years after he and his family moved to the United States. They settled in Tucson, Arizona, where Abdi still resides. Abdi finished third in his 17th career marathon at the 2020 U.S. Team Trials, qualifying for the U.S. team 20 years after first doing so. He is also a four-time USATF Champion at 10,000-meters, a distance that he previously competed in the years 2000, 2004, and 2008. In 2016, Abdirahman finished third at the TCS New York City Marathon, making him the oldest male runner to make the podium.
