While Kipruto , 30 , celebrates his biggest win so far, Kipyogei , 27, on the other side gives a big smile completing a double in the women’s race.
Making it a historical moment, Kipruto ran for two hours, nine minutes and 51 seconds in Massachusetts. Earlier this year, he was also the man to claim gold in Prague.
On the other hand, Kipyogei had a tough moment emerging winner. If she had lost, a Kenyan would still be taking pictures wearing a bright smile.
She came ahead of Edna Kiplagat and Mary Ngugi — all Kenyans.
