Boston Marathon victor Desiree Linden slowed down for rival's bathroom stop

Boston Marathon victor Desiree Linden slowed down for rival's bathroom stop

Two-time Olympian Desiree Linden became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in 33 years on Monday when she broke the tape at the finish line with a time of 2 hours, 39 minutes, 54 seconds.

Linden said she felt she might not be able to finish and was willing to do what she could to help Flanagan. That was more than four minutes better than second-place finisher Sarah Sellers - one of seven Americans in the top 10 - but the slowest time for a women's victor in Boston since 1978.

Japan's Yuki Kawauchi put on a late spurt to claim the men's title.

The 34-year-old took second in the 2011 Boston Marathon and placed seventh in the marathon at the 2016 Olympics.

"I'm thrilled. I'm exhausted".

Linden and Burla dropped back from the lead pack and when Flanagan reappeared from the bathroom, Linden ran side-by-side with her USA rival to rejoin the leaders.

Lisa Larsen Weidenbach was the last American to win the Boston Marathon, coming in 1985.

South Africa backs Morocco for 2026 World Cup
Quoted by SAFA, Bell said "when South Africa talks on the continent, the rest of the continent listens hence it is vital for South Africa to support Morocco".

American Des Linden celebrates her victory in the 122nd Boston Marathon on a cold, windy and rainy day.

Kawauchi, 31, appeared stunned and emotional at the finish line.

In 2011, Linden finished second in the women's division, just 2 seconds behind Caroline Kilel.

Linden was arguably the least-talked about of the four who entered the weekend looking to end the US women's 33-year drought.

"I don't have the right words", she said after finishing ahead of American teammate Sarah Sellers. "Helping her helped me and kind of got my legs back from there". Huddle finished 13th in her Boston debut.

Galen Rupp, a two-time Olympic medalist who finished second in Boston a year ago, appeared to drop out after the 18-mile mark. He clocked 1:46:26, well off his course record 1:18:04 from past year when the race-start temperature was near 70 degrees. The move was atypical for an elite runner, but iconic marathoner Katherine Switzer said on the WBZ broadcast Flanagan should be able to make up for the time lost because of the slower pace.
