Dennis Kimetto out-duelled fellow Kenyan Emmanuel Mutai in the final mile on Sunday to win the Chicago Marathon in a course record of 2 hours, 3 minutes 45 seconds.

The two were neck-and-neck for much of the race before Kimetto pulled away in the closing stages to win the first major US marathon since the bombings at the Boston Marathon in April killed three people. Kimetto beat the course record of 2:04:38 set by Ethiopian Tsegaye Kebede last year and added the Chicago title to the Tokyo Marathon crown he won in February. — AFP
