NEW YORK (AP) - Geoffrey Kamworor of Kenya has won the New York City Marathon, holding off countryman Wilson Kipsang by three seconds for his first major victory. A pack of nine competitors consistently jockeyed with Keitany for the lead, including three runners making their NY debut: Kenya's Betsy Saina; Ethiopia's Mamitu Daska; and Sara Dossena, an Italian triathlete.

"This is a moment I've dreamed of since I was a little girl", the 36-year-old Flanagan said.

The race was held amid heightened security after a terror attack that killed eight people on a popular bike path in Manhattan last week. Flanagan's time is the second fastest time ever clocked by a US woman in the race.

After taking the lead in the 23rd mile, the 24-year-old 2015 NY runner-up had to contend with Kipsang, whose final push brought him ever so close to his countryman.

In the men's wheelchair race, Switzerland's Marcel Hug completed an American clean sweep, crossing the line in 1:37.17 to add to his wins in Boston and Chicago this year. Kipsang settled for the second place at 2:10:56.
