Tatyana McFadden wins women's wheelchair race at Boston Marathon for fourth year in a row

BOSTON — Tatyana McFadden of Clarksville, Md., won the women's wheelchair race at the Boston Marathon on Monday for the fourth year in a row.

McFadden completed the 26.2-mile course from Hopkinton to Copley Square in an official time of 1 hour, 42 minutes, 16 seconds. That is 8:10 behind the record pace because of a headwind.

McFadden, 26, was born in Russia and adopted by an American woman as a small child.

She was wearing a singlet honoring Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy killed in the 2013 finish line bombings.
