The Boston Marathon is one of the highest-paying races in the world.
The race, held on Monday, April 17 attracted Kenya's top athletes including the greatest marathoner of all time Eliud Kipchoge.
Kipchoge was participating in the race for the first time and it did not go well for him. He settled for sixth place.
However, Kenya's Evans Chebet and Hellen Obiri represented the country well as they both bagged gold for the country.
In the men's race, Tanzania's Gabriel Geay settled for silver after crossing the finish line in a time of 02:06:04. Kenya's Benson Kipruto claimed third position after recording a time of 02:06:06.
Obiri, the two-time 5,000m World champion, cut the tape in a time of 2:21:38.
After posting stellar performances in the race, the athletes obviously are to bag something.
