Molly Seidel Breaks the American New York City Marathon Course Record
Coming off of a bronze-medal marathon finish at the Tokyo Olympics, Seidel broke the women's American course record in what was her New York City Marathon debut. She took fourth place in 2:24:42 and did so with two broken ribs.
"I didn't know until I crossed the line that that was what had happened," Seidel said, per New York Road Runners. "I'm just so incredibly honored. There are so many good women who have run on this course. I think it's really a testament to the women in this race that I was able to hang on to that group."
