Kenya’s Mary Keitany Wins NYC Marathon For 4th Time In 5 years



NEW YORK (AP) — Mary Keitany of Kenya has won the New York City Marathon, beating countrywoman Vivian Cheruiyot by three minutes, 13 seconds.

Keitany ran the race in 2 hours, 22 minutes, 48 seconds, the second fastest in history. Margaret Okayo of Kenya holds the record of 2:22:31, which was set in 2003.

The victory was Keitany’s fourth in New York in the last five years. She won in 2014, 2015 and 2016 before coming in second last year to American Shalane Flanagan. Keitany joined Grete Waitz as the only women to win the marathon four times. Waitz, a Norwegian, won the marathon nine times between 1978-1988.

Flanagan finished third with a time of 2:26:22.
