Kipsang, Keitany Win Titles At New York City Marathon

New York City

Kenya’s Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany won titles at the New York City Marathon on Sunday, with both pulling away in the final mile.

Kipsang was the world-record holder until five weeks ago, when occasional training partner Dennis Kimetto broke the mark in Berlin. With a windy morning slowing the pace Sunday, Kipsang showed he could win a strategic race, too. Bronx resident Buzunesh Deba of Ethiopia was ninth after finishing as the runner-up at the last two NYC Marathons. She was seeking to become the first New Yorker to win the race in 40 years.

Among other notable runners, No. 8-ranked women’s tennis player in the world, Caroline Wozniacki, completed the 26.2-mile marathon on Sunday.
