2016 Chicago Marathon: Kiriui and Kiplagat sweep the race

In Bank of America Chicago Marathon, 40,400 runners crossed the finish line in Chicagos front yard, Grant Park on Sunday Oct, 9. Abel Kirui and Florence Kiplagat sweep the podiums at the 39th Chicago Marathon.
Kirui finished in 2:11:23, the slowest Chicago Marathon time since 1993, held off defending champion Dickson Chumba (KEN). While Kiplagat finished faster than she did in 2015, a goal she had set following last year's race. Edna Kiplagat, also of Kenya, finished second, followed by Valentine Kipketer. 

シカゴマラソンはこれまで男子はケニア、女子はエチオピアが王国を築いてきた。しかしFlorence Kiplagatの2連覇で、女子もケニア時代到来が色濃くなってきた。
