American woman wins Boston Marathon

American woman wins Boston Marathon

Linden, 34, won with a time more than 14 minutes slower than her previous two races, but course conditions were not conducive to personal- or course-record performances.

For the fourth year in a row, Marcel Hug of Switzerland won the men's push rim wheelchair division, while American Tatyana McFadden won the women's push rim wheelchair division for the fifth time. "I'm thrilled. It's supposed to be hard".

"It was definitely toughest conditions, on the cold side, that I've run in", Desiree said, via MassLive.

Linden finished second in 2011 with a time of 2:22:38.

We saw their friendship play out in real time at the 2018 Boston Marathon.

As for herself, Flanagan was reportedly unsure she would even finish the Boston Marathon.

Shalane Flanagan was determined to give it all at the Boston Marathon that took place today (April 16), and she did just that. Flanagan dropped out of the lead pack to go to a portable toilet. "When you work together, you never know what's going to happen", Linden said of her pit stop with Flanagan, which ended up motivating her to get back into the race. "Helping her helped me and kind of got my legs back from there".

Mamitu Daska of Ethiopia held the lead for the much of the first 20 miles, but Chesir pulled even with her and took the lead briefly in the 21st mile around Boston College.

This was the slowest time for a women's victor since 1978.

Before Linden, the last American woman to win the Boston Marathon was Lisa Rainsberger in 1985.

At the end of the day, American men managed to snatch six of the Top 10 positions, with Andrew Bumbalough (2:19:52) coming in fifth, Scott Smith (2:21:47) finishing sixth, Elkanah Kibet (2:23:37) ranking eighth, and Daniel Vassallo (2:27:50) finishing last in the Top 10.
