Wesley Korir 2012 Boston Marathon Men's Winner

Congratulations to Wesley Korir, 2012 Boston Marathon Men's Winner

After an amazing race under the hot sun, Wesley Korir is the Men's Elite Winner of the 2012 Boston Marathon, finishing with a time of 2:12:40. Finishing behind Korir was Levy Matebo with a time of 2:13:06 and Bernard Kipyego with a time of 2:13:13. All three top spots are held by Kenyan runners. Korir, a graduate of Louisville, had a surprising come-from-behind victory moving from sixth place into first. No word yet if this win secures Korir a spot on the Kenyan Olympic marathon team, but his chances are looking really well. After the race, Korir had the press room in laughs: when asked his thoughts on the marathon, he lit up saying, "It’s hot out there, in case you didn’t know."

Defending champ and course record-holder Geoffrey Mutai was a favorite to win, but dropped out of the race at the 30K mark due to cramping.
