Meanwhile, in the action on the road, reigning champions Stanley Biwott and Mary Keitany are both confident about their chances of defending their respective TCS New York City Marathon titles.
Keitany and Biwott are hoping to become the first men and women to retain their titles at the New York City Marathon for the first time since 1995 when German Silva and Tegla Loroupe successfully accomplished the feat.
“Last year it was my first race win in the big ones [Marathon Majors]. It has taken me to another level,” Biwott said at his press conference. “Since I won in New York last year I have improved so much.”
On the women’s side, Keitany will start as a strong contender to win a third straight crown, something that hasn’t been achieved since Grete Waitz won it five time in the 1980s, according to the IAAF.
“I’ve been training well. I’m ready to come to New York and defend my title,” she said.
