On a day that was the wettest and most windy London Marathon in the history of 40 events Brigid Kosgei defends her London champion title in a strong time of 2:18:58. Surprising runner-up is Sara Hall (USA, 2:22:01) who wins a sprint finish with world record holder Ruth Chepngetich (KEN, 2:22:05). Official news elite ladies

More problems with the harsh conditions showed four-time London champion Eliud Kipchoge. At 3 miles to the finish he failed to follow the leading group. A spectacular sprint finish of three was won by Shura Kitata (ETH, 2:05:41) just one second ahead of Vincent Kipchumba (KEN) and a mere 3 more third runner Sisay Lemma (ETH). Kipchoge faded to 8th place. Official news elite men

Surprises, too, in the wheelchair races. The men's field was lead by Canadian Brant Lakatos with David Weir (UK) and Marcel Hug (CH) left for the podium.

Same astonishment with the ladies. Nikita den Boer (NED) took victory, beating defending champion Manuela Schär (CH) and Jenna Fesemyer (USA) at third place.
