Double victory for Kenya at NYC marathon

  • There were two Kenyan winners at the NYC Marathon this year.  

    Geoffrey Mutai, who set a course record at the NYC Marathon held in 2011, defended it this year and Priscah Jeptoo won the women's race. 

    The race was canceled due to Superstorm Sandy last year and security was heightened after the Boston Marathon bombings. 

    Mutai took two hours, 8 minutes and 24 seconds to complete the race and Jeptoo passed Buzunesh Deba with only a little more than two miles to the finish line.
