LONDON (AP) — World-record holder Wilson Kipsang won the London Marathon for the second time, seeing off a strong field with a course-record time on Sunday.
The 32-year-old Kenyan completed the 26.2-mile route in 2 hours, 4 minutes, 29 seconds — 11 seconds inside the previous fastest run in the British capital by Emmanuel Mutai in 2011. Compatriot Stanley Biwott was second, his best finish in London.
Two-time world champion Edna Kiplagat won the women's race. After twice finishing second in the British capital road race, the 34-year-old Kenyan went one better by completing in 2:20:21 — 3 seconds ahead of compatriot and namesake, Florence Kiplagat.
