NEW YORK — Defending champion Stanley Biwott dropped out of the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon around the 15km (9.3 miles) mark with a right calf injury. It is the second straight marathon that Biwott dropped out of as he also dropped out of the Rio Olympics.

Biwott was the favorite in the men’s field. According to Larry Rawson on the international broadcast Biwott missed 20 plus days with illness after Rio.

The men’s lead pack had 13 runners in it at 15km including Americans Dathan Ritzenhein, Abdi Abdirahman, and Shadrack Biwott.
