2015 Boston Marathon Lelisa Desisa

Men’s division winner

20 Apr, 2015

Desisa wins the men’s division in 2 hours 9 minutes 17 seconds. He throws off his hat and waves to spectators as he sprints to the finish. Desisa also won the 2013 marathon but gave his medal to the city of Boston in light of the bombings that year.

This medal is mine to keep . . . I started waving my hands because I love the Boston people.
