Jordan Hasay finishes third in Boston Marathon - after a year of injuries

A photo finish, including a sprint to the finish line, decided the elite men's division as Kenya's Lawrence Cherono spoiled the chance for Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia to win his third straight Boston Marathon title.

Krista DuChene finished her third Boston Marathon with a time of 2:44:12, eight seconds faster than her time in 2018.

The Boston Marathon, one of the most prestigious 26-mile races in the world, was once again run in awful conditions with rain, wind and low temperatures making fast times hard.

USA's Jordan Hasay was third in 2:25:20, Ethiopia's Meskerem Assefa fourth in 2:25:40 and defending champion Desiree Linden fifth in 2:27:00.

Brooke-Alvinston's "Marathon Mom" had another impressive run at this year's Boston Marathon.

Fauble and fellow American Jared Ward were also in the top 10, clocking 2:09:09 and 2:09:25 in seventh and eighth respectively. But it's still a competition, and a little late-race drama among elite athletes certainly doesn't hurt the viewing experience.
