American Wins Chicago Marathon, First Time Since 2002

Galen Rupp Is Better Prepared For The Marathon Than Ever

The 31-year-old from Portland, running in only his fourth marathon, clocked two hours, nine minutes and 20 seconds to take the victory after finishing second in the Boston Marathon six months ago.

In 2016, he came in 3rd out of 1,158 finishers at the Fitzgerald's Lager Run, a five-kilometer (3.1-mile) race in Glen Ridge, with a time of 16:34.

He broke free of a three-man pack that included defending champion, Kenyan Abel Kirui, and Ethiopian Sisay Lemma to sprint to the win.

"I hadn't really planned out when I was going to go but I definitely wanted to wait until 20 to 22 miles", Rupp said after the race. The last United States of America runner to medal in that race was Bill Mills, who won gold at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

We've experienced many mass shootings in recent years, with each episode seemingly more deadly than before. In total, across three locations, 47 firearms had been recovered, officials said.

Rupp, who is a former track star and three-time Olympian, finished the Boston Marathon in second place previous year and became the first American since 1964 to win a medal in the 10,000 meters at the 2012 London Olympics. "I worked very hard for this". He won his debut at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials before winning a bronze medal at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

This was followed by second place at the Boston Marathon before victory today.

But ultimately she came up slightly short of the course record.

Through 5K in the men's race, there were 26 runners in a lead pack, headed by American Aaron Braun, with all the favourites content on the slow pace, which continued through 10K, projected for a 2:12:30 finish. Kenya's Brigid Kosgei was second, and American Jordan Hasay third. Only Deena Kastor's 2:19:36 at the 2006 London Marathon is the fastest marathon by an American woman.
