Geoffrey Kirui and Edna Kiplagat ensured a Kenyan sweep at the 2017 Boston Marathon, winning the men’s and women’s races, respectively, Monday.
Kirui out-kicked American Galen Rupp, a three-time Olympian running in his first Boston Marathon, in the final 2 miles to claim the men’s race. Kiplagat, who has won marathons in London, New York and Los Angeles, finished first in her Boston debut.
It was the 121st running of the Boston Marathon.
