On Monday Meb Keflezighi became the first American man to win the Boston Marathon since 1983, one year after the bombings which left three dead and 264 injured.
Keflezighi crossed the finish line with a time of 2:08:37, 11 seconds ahead of second place finisher Wilson Chebet of Kenya.
Keflezighi looked over his shoulder several times as he approached the final mile. After realizing he wouldn't be caught, Keflezighi raised his sunglasses and made the sign of the cross.
