Ethiopian Worknesh Degefa, 28, eased to win the 123rd Boston Marathon women's race in two hours 23 minutes and 31 seconds, leading alone about 36 kilometers.

Seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson made it to the finish line for the second time in three days on Monday, successfully completing his first attempt at the Boston Marathon.

Degefa's only other marathon experience might have been on the flat roads of Dubai, but the 28-year-old - whose PB of 2:17:41 from January puts her fourth on the world all-time list - wasn't put off by Boston's hills.

She was 2 minutes, 20 seconds behind fellow American Jordan Hasay who was the top American woman finishing in third place.
