BOSTON (AP) -- Wesley Korir won the Boston Marathon on Monday in
a heat-slowed unofficial time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, 40 seconds.
A year after Geoffrey Mutai ran the fastest marathon in history
to win here, Korir won the second-slowest Boston race since 1985.
Mutai dropped out after 18 miles with cramps as temperatures rose
into the 80s on the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton to Copley Square.
Sharon Cherop won the women's race to complete the Kenyan sweep, outsprinting fellow Kenyan Jemima Jelagat Sumgong to win in an unofficial 2 hours, 31 minutes, 50 seconds.
It was the fifth consecutive year that the women's race came
down to a sprint down Boylston Street.
Korir was the 19th Kenyan men's winner in 22 years.
