A couple of Kenyans once again reigned supreme at the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, as Geoffrey Mutai and Priscah Jeptoo captured the men's and women's titles, respectively. 

Since 1994, 16 total individuals from Kenya have crossed the finish line first at the prestigious race, while this marks the third time in history they have completed a clean sweep in the two main divisions. 

Marcel Hug of Switzerland and Tatyana McFadden of the United States took home victories in the wheelchair division, while Tom Davis and Minda Dentler won the handcycle races. 

Here's a complete look at the winners, courtesy of INGNYCMarathon.org:

Men's Open Division: Geoffrey Mutai

Mutai, who set a course record in 2011, defended his New York City title (there was no race in 2012) in impressive fashion. While he didn't quite match his 2011 time, he bested Tsegaye Kebede—this year's London Marathon winner and 2008 Olympic bronze medalist—by nearly a minute. 

The 32-year-old, who was left out of the Olympics after failing to finish the Boston Marathon in 2012, became the first man to win back-to-back titles since compatriot John Kagwe did it in 1997 and '98. 

When he's healthy, there's very little question that Mutai is the best marathoner in the world. 

 

Women's Open Division: Priscah Jeptoo

Jeptoo passed New York native and Ethiopian Buzunesh Deba in the final three miles of the race, using that late push to secure her first victory at this course.

Steven Mills of Athletics Weekly broke down the splits from the final miles, showing Jeptoo's dramatic comeback after passing the halfway point more than three minutes behind the lead:

After taking home silver at the London Olympics in 2012, the 29-year-old has enjoyed an incredibly impressive 2013, winning in London, Bogota and now New York. 

With the victory, she also earned the World Marathon Majors women's title. 

 

Men's Wheelchair Division: Marcel Hug

In the most thrilling finish of the day, Marcel Hug was able to hold off Ernst van Dyk and Kurt Fearnley by one second to capture his first New York Marathon victory.

Take a look at the final moment:

It was obviously a big win for Hug, but considering van Dyk has nine Boston Marathon wins and Fearnley, an Olympic gold medalist, won four straight in New York at one point, the Swiss native has to be more than ecstatic with his winning performance. 

 

Women's Wheelchair Division: Tatyana McFadden

Tatyana McFadden is unstoppable. 

The 24-year-old, who won three golds in London and another six (!) at the IPC World Championships in Lyon, raced out to a three-plus-minute win, giving her victories in Boston, Chicago, London and New York in 2013. 

That makes her the first person ever to win the Grand Slam of marathons. Ho-hum, just another day for the best in the world.
