Who could forget the finish at the Boston Marathon in April with Kilel and American Desiree Davila racing stride for stride all the way to the finish line? In the end, it was Kilel who took the victory, her first in a major marathon.

If it comes down to a finishing sprint through Central Park, the chances are good.
