Lemi Berhanu Hayle Drops The Hammer On Lelisa Desisa To Win Boston and Get His First World Marathon Major Win
It was defending champ Desisa who really broke the race open just after 25K and made it a two-man duel between he and Berhanu. But in the end, Berhanu was way better as he crushed Desisa over the final mile to win in 2:12:45 to Desisa's 2:13:32. Yemane Tsegay made it an Ethiopian sweep as he held off former champ Wesley Korir for 3rd.
