Desi Linden is first American to win the women's race in 33 years of Boston Marathon. Winners List & Prize Money.





    Desiree Linden turned into the first American to win the Boston Marathon ladies' race in 33 years, as amateur Yuki Kawauchi won the men's elite divisions.

Two-time Olympian Linden, 34, went too far in two hours 39 minutes 54 seconds in wet conditions.

Lisa Larsen Weidenbach had been the last American lady to win the Boston Marathon, in 1985.

Kawauchi - the principal Japanese man to win in Boston since 1987 - completed in 2:15:58.

The 31-year-old completed ninth at the World Championships in London a year ago, having ascended to conspicuousness in the wake of completing third at the 2011 Tokyo Marathon.

Switzerland's Marcel Hug won the men's wheelchair race for the fourth progressive year while American Tatyana McFadden won her fifth ladies' wheelchair title.

Quotes from Boston Marathon 2018.

#BostonMarathon



"Honestly, at mile 2, 3, 4, I didn't feel like I was even going to make it to the finish line," Linden said. "I told her in the race, I said, 'You know, if there's anything I can do to help you out, let me know because I might just drop out.' When you work together, you never know what's going to happen. Helping her helped me and kind of got my legs back from there."

"I love this city,". "I love this race, this course. It's storybook, so I'm thrilled to be here and to get it done."  Linden said to NBC Sports.
