    Kawauchi and Linden in super bad weather
    BOSTON (USA, Apr 16): Japan’s Yuki Kawauchi (2:15:58) and the United States’ Desiree Linden (2:39:54) were the surprise winners of the Boston Marathon which took place in near-freezing temperatures, heavy rain and strong headwinds. Many of the elite runners started the race wearing ponchos or long-sleeved jackets and a high proportion didn’t complete the distance. Linden caught Ethiopia’s Mamitu Daska just before the 35km checkpoint and opened up a winning margin of four minutes in the last seven kilometres. The nearly unknown Sarah Sellers moved up from eleventh at the 35km checkpoint to second in a PB of 2:44:04 (82:05/81:59) while Canadian veteran Krista DuChene (80:22/83:58) ran a steady race to finish third in 2:44:20. New York Marathon winner Shalane Flanagan, who stopped for a pitstop around the halfway stage, was seventh in 2:46:31, two places ahead of reigning champion Edna Kiplagat from Kenya in 2:47:14. Daska and Kenya’s Gladys Chesir, who briefly led after Daska fell away, were among the notable DNFs. In the men’s race, reigning champion Geoffrey Kirui still led by 20 seconds at the 40km checkpoint but the Kenyan fell apart in the late stages, losing nearly two-and-a-minutes on Kawauchi in the last 2.2 kilometres. Kawauchi won in 2:15:58 ahead of an exhausted Korir (2:18:23) with Americans Shadrack Biwott (2:18:35), Tyler Pennel (2:18:57), Andrew Bumbalough (2:19:52) and Scott Smith (2:21:47) filling the next four spots. Eight of the top-10 leaders at the halfway point in 65:59 didn’t complete the distance, including Chicago Marathon winner Galen Rupp and Ethiopians Tamirat Tola, Lemi Berhanu and Lelisa Desisa.

    Dramatic marathon ending
    GOLD COAST (AUS, Apr 15): There was a dramatic climax to the men’s marathon at the Commonwealth Games. Scotland’s Callum Hawkins had amassed a two-minute lead but the 25-year-old collapsed at the 40km checkpoint and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance and will remain in hospital overnight as a precaution. Reigning champion Michael Shelley from Australia was the beneficiary, coming through to successfully defend his title in 2:16:46 ahead of Uganda’s Solomon Mutai (2:19:02) and Scotland’s Robbie Simpson (2:19:36). Northern Ireland’s Kevin Seaward was the only other runner to break the 2:20-barrier in fourth in 2:19:54. Kenyans Julius Karinga (2:24:26) and Kenneth Mungara (2:25:42) were ninth and tenth respectively. In demanding conditions (27C temperature and 69% humidity) seven of the 24 starters didn’t complete the distance. In the women’s race, Namibia’s Helalia Johannes won the title in 2:32:40 ahead of Australians Lisa Weightman (2:33:23) and Jessica Trengove (2:34:09). Only the top six finishers broke the 2:40-barrier.
