winners1 Record Finish at 2011 Boston Marathon!!!Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds. It’s the fastest anyone has ever run the 26.2 mile distance.

But, because of a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai’s run is not recognized by track’s international governing body as a record.

He was almost three minutes better than the course record set last year.

Ryan Hall ran the fastest marathon ever for an American, finishing fourth in 2:04:58.

Kenya’s Caroline Kilel won the women’s race, outsprinting Desiree Davila the U.S. to the finish line.

    Racism will always raise it’s ugly head when a black person break records long held sacred by whites…Tiger Woods, Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson, Jesse Owens, Joe Louis, Marion Jones and the list goes on…You will always find some scandal lurking in the wings, so they can strip these people of their titles and leave whites as the record holders…And people still want to claim post racial? Where the hell was race mailed to, if you want to claim ‘post’? Mark McGuire is a batting coach for St Louis and he lied and took steroids, Jose Canseco used steroids, and has moved on with his career, the BALCO owner, is stil doing business training athletes and moved on with his career….The only ones not alllowed, are black athletes, who will either go broke from attorney fees (Bonds), or will spend time in jail and their endorsements will be stripped from them…
