Kirui, Kiplagat fail to defend Chicago Marathon titles

Kirui, Kiplagat fail to defend Chicago Marathon titles”

Galen Rupp, the three-time Olympian, crossed the finish line with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 9 minutes and 20 seconds over the 26.2-mile course. Between the runners and the spectators, some one million people could crowd Chicago's Loop and the 29 city neighborhoods that the race route snakes through.

Rupp, competing in just his fourth marathon, surged clear of the rest of field in a tactical race with a 24th mile recorded in just 4min 30sec.

He broke free of a three-man pack that included defending champion, Kenyan Abel Kirui, and Ethiopian Sisay Lemma to sprint to the win.

India face tough competition in the group matches as they take on USA, Ghana and Columbia. The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi could play host to some mouth-watering fixtures.

"It's just incredible", Rupp said.

Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba pushed toward a course-record pace nearly from the start to win the women's side of the Marathon in 2:18:31. It is the first time since 2002 an American has won the men's Chicago Marathon. "This was very special for me, this was my third marathon and I am pleased because I have learnt a lot", she said after the race. "I worked very hard for this".

McFadden, who has seven Paralympic gold medals, as well as a silver medal in the marathon in 2016, is the only racer to win all four world major marathons in a single year. "When I went I knew I had to put the hammer down, be decisive and go for the finish".

Dibaba vowed to challenge the women's course record of 2:17:18 set by British world record holder Paula Radcliffe in 2002 and was on that pace in the early going.

The time made her the second-fastest American marathoner in history behind only Deena Kastor, who clocked 2:19.36 in 2006. Coming in behind her was 23-year-old Brigid Kosgei of Kenya with a time of 02:20:22.
