Kipyogei wins women's Boston Marathon

BOSTON (AFP) - Kenya’s Diana Kipyogei won the women’s race at the rescheduled Boston Marathon on Monday.

The 27-year-old moved clear of the field at around the 18-mile mark and held off a late challenge from veteran Edna Kiplagat to take the tape in 2hr 24min 45sec.

Kiplagat, the two-time world champion and Boston winner in 2017, finished in 2:25:09 while Mary Ngugi completed a Kenyan sweep in third.
