Brantford’s DuChene places an incredible third at Boston Marathon

Brantford’s Krista DuChene posted one of the greatest results – and finishes – by a Canadian woman in the history of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Competing in one of the most prestigious marathons in the world, DuChene finished third among the 13,391 women registered in a time of two hours, 44 minutes, 20 seconds.

The 41-year-old finished behind winner Desiree Linden of the United States (2:39:54) and Sarah Sellers (2:44:04), also of the U.S.

DuChene was the only finisher among the top-eight that wasn’t from the United States.
