USA's Hasay pulls out of Boston Marathon

Desiree Linden wins Boston Marathon after waiting for friend

The city of Boston has held a moment of silence on the fifth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Hasay, third in the race past year, was advised by her doctor and team on Sunday that she needed more time to recover fully so there would be no long-term injury, the marathon said in a statement.

On the eve of the 2018 marathon the mayor believes the tragedy has united the city.

In Hasay's own statement, she expressed regret for withdrawing.

Jordan Hasay has withdrawn from the Boston Marathon due to a stress reaction in her heel.

Later that year, the former University of OR star followed with a third-place finish at the Chicago Marathon, with an improved time of 2:20:57.

For all the impact made by Hasey in recent months, she was soundly beaten over 15 kilometres recently by Molly Huddle.

Hasay's late withdrawal from Boston is a bummer, as she was one of the favorites to end the American women's 33-year title drought. She was also second to Rose Chelimo in the World Track and Field Championships marathon and fourth in NY.

Although Huddle's time in her marathon debut was on 2:28:13 she has the competitive temperament to make her second attempt at the distance even more memorable.

Kiplagat, 37, pulled away with more than five miles remaining previous year to win at Boston in 2:21:52.

On the men's side home runner Galen Rupp, beaten to this title a year ago by Kenya's 24-year-old Geoffrey Kirui, will seek to turn that result around as both men return to the race this year.

An American woman hasn't won the Boston Marathon since Lisa Larsen Rainsberger in 1985.
