Business as usual at NYC Marathon

No milk boycott for these sons of the soil..


Geoffrey Kamworor of Kenya glanced over his shoulder in the final stretch of the New York City Marathon on Sunday, keeping an eye on his countryman Wilson Kipsang just a few strides behind. Was Kipsang waiting to strike, ready to unleash one last burst to catch Kamworor in Central Park?

Kipsang, it turned out, couldn’t close the gap. He was a few seconds too slow on this day.

Kamworor, a two-time world champion in the half-marathon, established his bona fides at 26.2 miles on the streets of New York on Sunday, holding off Kipsang and the rest of the men’s field in 2 hours 10 minutes 53 seconds.

At just 24, Kamworor has already had an impressive young career in the New York. He finished second in his debut of the race in 2015 and is the 14th Kenyan to win it.
