Paralympian Tatyana McFadden wins seventh straight Chicago Marathon in record time

Dennis Kimetto celebrates winning the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 2:03:45

The 31-year-old ran 2:09:20, a PB, followed by defending champion and Kenyan Abel Kirui in 2:09:48.

The women's race was won by Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba in 2 hours 18 minutes and 31 seconds. "This was very special for me, this was my third marathon and I am pleased because I have learnt a lot", she said after the race. The two-time Olympic medalist (silver in the 10,000-meter in 2012, bronze in the marathon in 2016) is the first American to win the Chicago Marathon since Khalid Khannouchi in 2002. "I worked very hard for this". Kenyans had won the Chicago men's title in 13 of the past 14 years.

The lead pack slowly dwindled over the next 10km, leaving only Rupp, Kirui and Ethiopia's Sisay Lemma after 22 miles. Sunday marked his fourth career marathon. I really wanted to wait. "I felt a little gap pulling away and then I said I've just got to put down the hammer and pull away. It feels tremendous. I feel so great I was able to pull it out".

But ultimately she came up slightly short of the course record.

The time made her the second-fastest American marathoner in history behind only Deena Kastor, who clocked 2:19.36 in 2006.

Dibaba hit the front before the halfway mark and although Kosgei stuck with her for around six miles, the treble Olympic champion opened up a significant lead at the 19-mile stage and there was only going to be one victor.

Rupp is a three-time U.S. Olympian.

She won 5,000 and 10,000 gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and defended the longer crown four years later in London.

Around 25K, Hasay began fading from the lead women - Dibaba and Brigid Kosgei - by approximately 20 seconds but was still on sub-2:19 pace, under the American women's marathon record of 2:19:36, running alongside Kiplagat.
