Former Ducks Galen Rupp, Jordan Hasay place in Boston Marathon
Kenya's Geoffrey Kirui won the Boston Marathon, outrunning University of Oregon alum Galen Rupp by less than half a minute.
This marks Kirui's first marathon victory ever. He took Monday's 121st running of the Boston Marathon with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 9 minutes, 36 seconds.
Rupp finished unofficially in 2 hours, 9 minutes, 58 seconds.
Also representing Oregon, Jordan Hasay placed third in her marathon debut. She finished at 2 hours, 23 minutes.
Hasay crossed the finish line behind Kenyan policewoman Edna Kiplagat (unofficial 2 hours, 21 minutes, 53 seconds) and Rose Chelimo of Bahrain (2 hours, 22 minutes, 52 seconds)
Desi Linden, who was second in Boston by 2 seconds in 2011, finished fourth — the first time since 1991 that two U.S. women have finished in the top four.
