Keitany, Ghebreslassie win NYC Marathon

first_img UNOFFICIAL TIME Tatyana McFadden won the women’s wheelchair race to sweep the four major marathons for the fourth straight year. The 27-year-old American finished with an unofficial time of 1:47:43. She completed the Grand Slam by winning in London, Boston, Chicago and New York, extending her record streak to 17 straight wins in major marathons. McFadden, who won six medals at the Rio Paralympics, took the lead for good at the 15-mile mark and comfortably led the rest of the course to win for the fifth time in New York. Marcel Hug of Switzerland won his second NYC Marathon title in the men’s race and his sixth marathon this year. He edged Australia’s Kurt Fearnley by sixth-tenths of a second, repeating their photo finish at last month’s Chicago marathon. Defending champion Ernst Van Dyk of South Africa came in fourth. NEW YORK (AP): Eritrea’s Ghirmay Ghebreslassie and Kenya’s Mary Keitany won the New York City (NYC) Marathon yesterday. Keitany became the first woman to win three straight titles since Grete Waltz won five straight from 1982 to 1986. She pulled away around the 15th mile and finished with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 24 minutes, 26 seconds – one second behind her time last year. Ghebreslassie finished his debut in New York with a time of 2:7:51. For most of the course, the men’s field was a three-man race between Ghebreslassie, Kenya’s Lucas Rotich, and Ethiopia’s Lelisa Desisa. By mile 20, Ghebreslassie began gradually pulling away. The 20-year-old beat Rotich by 62 seconds to become the youngest male winner in New York. The previous youngest male winners were Alberto Salazar in 1980 and Tom Fleming in 1973, both won as 22-year-olds. Defending champion Stanley Biwott of Kenya withdrew at the 10-mile mark with a right calf injury. He also dropped out in the Rio Olympics after getting sick. American Abdi Abdirahman placed third. Desisa, who was the runner-up in New York in 2014 and a two-time Boston Marathon winner, dropped out at the 22nd mile.last_img read more

Ducks topple Avalanche, add to lead

first_imgThe Pacific Division-leading Ducks ended their three-game losing streak and extended their lead over the second-place San Jose Sharks to five points. The Ducks (36-17-10) and Sharks (38-23-1) play tonight in San Jose and again Friday in Anaheim. ANAHEIM – Swapping inertia for momentum, the Ducks earned a bounce-back victory Sunday night over the Colorado Avalanche as general manager Brian Burke worked the phones in search of a rent-a-veteran before Tuesday’s trade deadline. Andy McDonald scored two goals and added an assist and Scott Niedermayer had a goal and two assists to lead the Ducks to a 5-3 victory over the Avalanche in front of a sellout crowd of 17,174 at the Honda Center. “What we need to do is just keep going no matter what.” Niedermayer was one of several veteran players who met with coach Randy Carlyle on Saturday, the day after a dispiriting 4-1 loss to the third-place Dallas Stars. Carlyle asked for bigger contributions from the veterans. They certainly responded Sunday, led by Niedermayer. In addition to scoring the go-ahead goal, Niedermayer assisted on goals by Pronger and Teemu Selanne. Pronger and Selanne also had strong games, with a goal and an assist each. “The response from our veteran group was probably the key,” Carlyle said. Meanwhile, Burke kept his cell phone handy during the game. He said he is determined to stay involved in any and all negotiations. It’s believed he is in pursuit of a veteran forward who can bolster the Ducks’ scoring depth. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Niedermayer’s goal gave the Ducks a 4-3 lead at 16:37 of the final period, less than two minutes after Colorado’s Milan Hejduk tied it while the Ducks’ team captain was seated in the penalty box. Chris Pronger added a power-play goal at 17:25 for a 5-3 lead. “You never want to take three penalties like that,” Niedermayer said. “It’s obviously unacceptable no matter what you thought of the calls. We needed this game because the standings are getting pretty tight. last_img
