Cherono wins in Boston

Kenya’s Lawrence Cherono sprinted to victory in the Boston Marathon on Monday, overhauling Ethiopia’s Lelisa Desisa to claim a superb win. Desisa, the 2013 world champion and two-time Boston Marathon winner, looked to be on course for victory in the final 200 meters. But Cherono timed his finish to perfection, overhauling Desisa just a few meters from the tape to win in a time of 2 hours, 7 minutes and 58 seconds.
