Biwott and Keitany win in New York

Kenyans Stanley Biwott and Mary Keitany won the men’s and women’s titles at the New York Marathon on Sunday.

Biwott pulled away from countryman and world cross-country champion Geoffrey Kamworor in the last mile to win in two hours 10 minutes and 34 seconds.

Two-time London Marathon winner Keitany became the first back-to-back New York champion since Britain’s Paula Radcliffe in 2007 and 2008.

She beat Ethiopia’s Aselefech Mergia into second with a time of 2:24:25.
