Having seen Shalane Flanagan become the first home woman to win the New York City Marathon in 40 years last November, United States fans are looking forward to tomorrow's Boston Marathon with rising hopes of a similar landmark victory.

In Hasay's own statement, she expressed regret for withdrawing.

Hasay's late withdrawal from Boston is a bummer, as she was one of the favorites to end the American women's 33-year title drought. In fall, she made it two-for-two in A+ marathon runs with a third place, 2:20:57 effort in Chicago-the second-fastest time ever recorded by an American woman.

Hasay, New York City Marathon victor Shalane Flanagan and fellow Americans Desiree Linden and Molly Huddle had been expected to challenge Kenyan defending champion Edna Kiplagat to end the nation's 33-year wait for a home victor in the women's race.

Although Huddle's time in her marathon debut was on 2:28:13 she has the competitive temperament to make her second attempt at the distance even more memorable.




Kiplagat, 37, pulled away with more than five miles remaining past year to win at Boston in 2:21:52.

The two-time world champion has also won at London in 2014 and NY in 2010.Kirui is trying to become the first back-to-back men's victor at Boston since compatriot Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot in 2006-2008.

More recently Rupp has become only the second U.S. runner to break the hour mark for the half-marathon.

Kirui also won the world marathon crown with Ethiopia's Tamirat Tola second and boasting a 2:04:06 clocking from Dubai in January, where he was third.Ethiopians Lelisa Desisa, the 2013 and 2015 Boston champion, and Lemi Berhanu, the 2016 Boston victor, could also threaten for the title.

On April 15, 2013, three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the race.
