Abel Kirui will be seeking a successful Chicago Marathon title defence

Matthew Slocum finished the 26.2-mile race is two hours, 35 minutes and 24 seconds - good for 99th place, according to unofficial results.

Galen Rupp, 31, was the first American man to win the Chicago Marathon. The crushing blow by Rupp was a 2:47 surge in the 38th kilometer to break the race open and leave Kirui behind.

He broke free of a three-man pack that included defending champion, Kenyan Abel Kirui, and Ethiopian Sisay Lemma to sprint to the win.

"It's just incredible", he said at the finish line.

In a race contested in an entirely different manner, fast from the gun, Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba, a three-time Olympic champion and the women's 5,000m world record holder, won in 2:18:30.

Rupp, who is a former track star and three-time Olympian, finished the Boston Marathon in second place a year ago and became the first American since 1964 to win a medal in the 10,000 meters at the 2012 London Olympics.

The Indian players played a relative offensive game in the second half compared to the first and had a few opportunities to score. Four out of the six teams that finish third will also get a chance to proceed into the next round determined by goal difference.

"This is my third marathon and I'm very happy to have won here", Dibaba said. "I've made the mistake in the past of going too hard, too soon..."

McFadden, who has seven Paralympic gold medals, as well as a silver medal in the marathon in 2016, is the only racer to win all four world major marathons in a single year. I really wanted to wait. She missed the course record but clocked her second-fastest time ever. "When I went I knew I had to put the hammer down, be decisive and go for the finish". She stayed with the lead pack throughout and finished in third place with a time of 2:20:57. Coming in behind her was 23-year-old Brigid Kosgei of Kenya with a time of 02:20:22.
