Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 01 Nov 2015

Kenya'sStanley Biwott finished with the top overall time at the 2015 New York City Marathon, holding off a stiff challenge fromhis countryman,Geoffrey Kamworor, and pulling away in the final two miles to win the men's race.Biwottfinished in twohours, 10 minutes and 34 seconds to win the men's competition, beating Kamworor byjust 14 seconds.Biwott's journey has been a fascinating one, as he "worked on a dairy farm until 2006 and still owns 10 cows," according toNick Zaccardiof NBC Olympic Talk.Defending champion and Kenyan Wilson Kipsang finished fourth, while 2009 winner and top United States runnerMeb Keflezighi came in seventh.Meanwhile, for the second year in a row, Kenya's MaryKeitany won the women's race, this time in dominant fashion.SportsCenter on Twitter captured her crossing the finish line:Keitany pulled away from second-place finisherAselefech Mergia of Ethiopia around the 21-mile mark, eventually besting her by 67 seconds. Her time of twohours, 24 minutes and 25 seconds was nearly a minute better than her time from last year's triumph and made her the first woman to win the race in consecutive years sincePaula Radcliffe pulled of the feat in 2008."Coming to New York for the second time and being a champion again is really amazing to me," Keitany said after the race during the ESPN broadcast.Ethiopia's Tigist Tufa finished in third place.
