American Galen Rupp wins men's 2017 Chicago Marathon

American Galen Rupp wins men's 2017 Chicago Marathon

Rupp's time beat out last year's champion, Kenyan Abel Kirui, by 28 seconds, the Chicago Tribune reports. "It's just a great day".

Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba won the women's race in 2:18:31. "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. Rupp, who finished second in the Boston Marathon in April, is the first American male to win the race since Khalid Khannouchi in 2002. I made the mistake in the past of going out a little too hard too soon and you still have a long ways to go for several miles.

Kenya has dominated Chicago's marathon, winning 13 of the last 14 races.

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.

Stay tuned for top Canadian results from the 2017 Chicago Marathon. I really wanted to wait.

"I just tried to relax and when I make the move be decisive". "I feel like I've been second so many times in my career, just always this close so I just am so thrilled that I was able to pull it out here". Her sub-2:21 clocking is a course record for Americans. The men's pack at that pace was as large as 26 people. She stayed with the lead pack throughout and finished in third place with a time of 2:20:57.

Dibaba, 32, is a two-time 5,000m world champion and three-time 10,000m world champion.

Around 25K, Hasay began fading from the lead women - Dibaba and Brigid Kosgei - by approximately 20 seconds but was still on sub-2:19 pace, under the American women's marathon record of 2:19:36, running alongside Kiplagat.

She has won several laurels for the East African country at the Olympics and in other worldwide competitions.
