40th Chicago Marathon This Morning

Galen Rupp

Galen Rupp of Portland, Oregon on Sunday morning became the first American to win the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 15 years and prevented Kenyan Abel Kirui from a back-to-back win.

Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba pushed toward a course-record pace nearly from the start to win the women's side of the Marathon in 2:18:31. She finished third again on Sunday in 2:20:57.

In 2016, he came in 3rd out of 1,158 finishers at the Fitzgerald's Lager Run, a five-kilometer (3.1-mile) race in Glen Ridge, with a time of 16:34.

It made Rupp the first home victor since Moroccan-born Khalid Khannouchi in 2002 and the first American-born champion since Greg Meyer in 1982. The last American-born runner to win the men's race was Greg Meyer in 1982. Her sub-2:21 clocking is a course record for Americans.

Meanwhile, the women were on course-record pace through 10K, clocking 32:28, including Dibaba, Hasay and Florence Kiplagat, the two-time defending champion.

The men split 1:05:49 through the halfway point while the women were not far back in 1:08:48. The last United States of America runner to medal in that race was Bill Mills, who won gold at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The World Marathon Majors continue on November 5 with the New York City Marathon.

Jordan Hasay, a 26-year-old from Fontana, California, came close to matching the feat in the women's race.

As Dibaba had more than a minute lead at the 40K mark, she was never in danger of finishing outside of the winner's circle. Kosgei of Kenya finished second in the women's race, lowering her personal best by four minutes clocking 2:20:22. Kenya's Bernard Kipyego was third.
