Shalane Flanagan came to the finish line of the New York City Marathon and enveloped herself in an American flag, the magnitude of what she had accomplished bringing her to tears and to her knees. Kenyan Mary Keitany, who had won in NY in each of the past three years and set a world record in April, finished second.

The men's title went to Kenyan Geoffrey Kamworor, who held off countryman Wilson Kipsang.

Kipsang, the 2014 NY champion, was three seconds back with Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa third in 2:11:32.

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

Flanagan previously finished second in the 2010 NYC Marathon.

More than 50,000 runners participated across the different groups. She finished sixth in the Rio Olympics marathon.

Switzerland swept the professional wheelchair divisions. Flanagan also took bronze in the 10,000-meter contest at the 2008 Olympics, but in March, the International Association of Athletics Federations ruled that the silver medalist, Turkey's Elvan Abeylegesse, was being sanctioned for a positive doping case and was disqualified for a two-year period that included the Beijing Games, making Flanagan's the second-fastest time.

Repeat victor Marcel Hug gave Switzerland the men's title in equally dominant fashion, defending his championship in 1:37:21, more than two minutes ahead of British runner-up John Charles Smith. Emmanuel Mutai from Kenya settled second in 2:03:13 followed by Ethiopian Abera Kuma in 2:05:56 and Kamworor 2:06:39.
