BOSTON - Meb Keflezighi became the first American man to win the Boston Marathon since Greg Meyer won it in 1983.
Keflezighi finished in an unofficial time of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 37 seconds.
BOSTON — Rita Jeptoo of Kenya has won the women's division of the Boston Marathon, setting a course record in the process.
Jeptoo won in 2006 and again in 2013. She won this year with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 18 minutes and 57 seconds. She was the first of four women who all finished faster than the previous Boston Marathon course record. American Shalane Flanagan led for much of the race but fell behind later. She still set a personal best of 2 hours, 22 minutes and 2 seconds, good for sixth place.
BOSTON — Tatyana McFadden of the University of Illinois has won the women's wheelchair race at the Boston Marathon for the second straight year. McFadden celebrated her 25th birthday Monday and listened as "The Star-Spangled Banner" played on Boylston Street one year after the bombings that left three dead and more than 260 injured. She crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds. McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child. She also won the 2013 New York City Marathon women's wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. No other athlete has won those four races in the same year.
BOSTON — Ernst van Dyk of South Africa has won the men's wheelchair division of the Boston Marathon for a record 10th time.
The 41-year-old crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 36 seconds. Van Dyk holds the record for most all-categories Boston Marathon wins. This was his first win at this race since 2010.
Van Dyk finished 38 seconds ahead of two Japanese racers. Kota Hokinoue finished less than a wheel length ahead of Masazumi Soejima, with both recording a time of 1:21:14.
