American Meb Keflezighi won the men’s division of the Boston Marathon today. Rita Jeptoo of Kenya won the women’s.

Keflezighi is the first American man to win the race since 1983. Jeptoo captured back-to-back championships and became the seventh woman to win three marathon crowns.

As the winners crossed the finish, they were cheered on by spectators, many in yellow and blue “Boston Strong” T-shirts, who came to watch the race a year after a pair bombs exploded near the finish line.
