Manuela Schaar won her first New York City Marathon in 1:48:09 after finishing second to American Tatyana McFadden for the past three years.

With an unofficial time of 2 hours, 26 minutes and 53 seconds, the 36-year-old Flanagan beat three-time defending champion Mary Keitany of Kenya by a minute and one second.

Shalane Flanagan made history as the first American woman to win.

Kenya's Mary Keitany, who was chasing her fourth consecutive NY victory, was second with 61 seconds back.

Kamworor returned to Berlin in 2013, where he once again settled third in 2:06:26, as Wilson Kipsang obliterated Makau's world record with new times of 2:03:23 followed Kipchoge in 2:04:05.

But in the end it was Kamworor who won by three seconds in 2:10:53 with Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa third in 2:11:32.

Even so, it's unclear how hard Democrats will go after Sessions even if they conclude that he lied to Congress. After the trip, the foreign policy adviser sent an email to at least one Trump campaign aide.


"It's a moment I'm trying to soak up and savor", she said, according to the station.

The race was held amid heightened security after a terror attack that killed eight people on a popular bike path in Manhattan last week.

More than 50,000 runners participated across the different groups. New York City is also where her marathon career began.

While Flanagan was an overwhelming victor, Kamworor was not assured of his first major victory until the closing meters.

Switzerland swept the professional wheelchair divisions. Flanagan's time is the second fastest time ever clocked by a US woman in the race.

Repeat victor Marcel Hug gave Switzerland the men's title in equally dominant fashion, defending his championship in 1:37:21, more than two minutes ahead of British runner-up John Charles Smith.
