Kamworor returned to Berlin in 2013, where he once again settled third in 2:06:26, as Wilson Kipsang obliterated Makau's world record with new times of 2:03:23 followed Kipchoge in 2:04:05.

"This is the moment I have dreamed off since I was a little girl", Flanagan said after the race, tears streaming down her face. The Massachusettes native said earlier that if she were to win her first major marathon on Sunday, it could be her last 26.2-mile race at age 36.

Thousands of police lined the course as part of heightened security because of the incident.

Shalane Flanagan has become the first American woman to win the popular annual marathon in the past 40 years.

But Flanagan, motivated and exhilarated, proved untouchable even for Keitany.

USA unemployment rate falls to 4.1 per cent, lowest in 17 years
The leisure and hospitality sector added 106,000 jobs after losing 102,000 in September. The unemployment rate ticked down to 4.1%, its lowest level since December 2000.

Flanagan's win disrupted the marathon dominance of Kenya's Mary Keitany.

Keitany, victor of this year's London Marathon and the fastest ever in a women's only marathon, had been expected to run away with the race but a slow pace allowed Flanagan and others to stay with her early. Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia was third at 2:11:32.

Flanagan placed sixth in the women's marathon in at the Rio Olympics previous year, the top American finish. Flanagan also took bronze in the 10,000-meter contest at the 2008 Olympics, but in March, the International Association of Athletics Federations ruled that the silver medalist, Turkey's Elvan Abeylegesse, was being sanctioned for a positive doping case and was disqualified for a two-year period that included the Beijing Games, making Flanagan's the second-fastest time.

Switzerland swept the professional wheelchair divisions.
