Kenya’s Kamworor Wins Men’s New York Marathon; US’s Flanagan Wins Women’s

NEW YORK – Kenyan runner Geoffrey Kamworor won the men’s New York Marathon on Sunday with a time of two hours, 10 minutes and 53 seconds.

In second place among the male runners was Kamworor’s fellow Kenyan Wilson Kipsang, two seconds back, although he had been one of the favorites and had vied strenuously to take the lead in the closing stretch of the race.

In third place was Ethiopia’s Lelisa Desisa, 38 seconds behind Kamworor.

In the women’s category, Shalane Flanagan crossed the finish line first, the first US runner to win the race in 40 years, with a time of 2:26:53.

Flanagan took the lead from Kenya’s Mary Keitany, who took second place 1 minute and 1 second behind, although she had been seeking her third consecutive victory in the New York contest.

The two runners were in the leading group all during the race.

The last American woman to win the New York Marathon was Miki Gorman in 1977.
