Yuki Kawauchi Dominates Men's Race in Boston

The biggest story of the Boston Marathon was Desiree Linden, who broke the race's 32-year drought on us winners for women.

Congrats to Linden on one of racing's greatest accomplishments.

Linden and Burla dropped back from the lead pack and when Flanagan reappeared from the bathroom, Linden ran side-by-side with her US rival to rejoin the leaders.

Following an emotional triumph in the New York City Marathon last November, the 36-year-old from Marblehead responded to a congratulatory tweet from Boston victor Desiree Linden late Monday afternoon with four simple words: "Now it's your turn".

Minutes later, Kawauchi did the same, storming past defending champion Geoffrey Kirui late in the race for his first major marathon win in an unofficial time of 2:15:54.

Canadas Krista Duchene was third, with a total of seven Americans in the womens top 10 and — for the second straight year — six in the mens.

Japan's Yuki Kawauchi and America's Desiree Linden ended long droughts for their countries with stunning victories in a wet and windy Boston Marathon on Monday.

"Oh my gosh, I respect her so much for doing that", Rainsberger said of Linden's support of Flanagan.




The last American women's victor in Boston?

Marathon officials had tweeted that Ethiopian Mamitu Daska had a good-size lead about two hours into the race.

Supposedly, Linden's end time could have been even better. "And it turned out I was in third, and I thought, 'Well, I probably shouldn't drop out", said Linden, who earned $150,000.

This was Peck's fourth Boston Marathon, running in each since 2015.

Meanwhile, Vinnie Kelley crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon just before noon, with an official time of three hours, 25 minutes, and 59 seconds. She made the 2012 London Olympics team but did not finish the race.

"For me, these are the best conditions possible", Kawauchi said jokingly, according to the Boston Marathon's Twitter account. "Everything was ideal on a really rotten day", she said. Kawauchi is the first Japanese man to win the race since 1987, and Linden is the first American woman to win the race since 1985.

Lisa Larsen Weidenbach of Marblehead, Mass., breaks the tape to win the women's division in the 89th Boston Marathon in 1985. "It just blows right through", Webb said, describing one of the worst moments of the race. "I just spoke to her on the phone". It was also the person who Kawauchi says encouraged him to run Boston.

Elite competitors began in rain coverings and at a slow pace in the coldest start since 1988 at 38 degrees (3.3 Celsius) with rain often blowing into runners' faces. He said the woman's kindness made his day and he went on social media, hoping to find her so he could return the jacket and thank her.
