New post Derartu Tulu Won New York City Marathon.
NEW YORK (AP) — Derartu Tulu of Ethiopia has won the New York City Marathon in her comeback to the sport.

She pulled away in the final mile Sunday, with 41-year-old Russian Ludmila Petrova the runner-up for the second straight year.



Two-time defending champ Paula Radcliffe was fourth. The world record-holder from Britain fell back from the lead pack in the 22nd mile. She grabbed her left leg in pain after finishing.

The 37-year-old Tulu won Olympic gold medals on the track in the 10,000 meters in 1992 and 2000. She hadn't won a major marathon since 2001 in London.

Christelle Daunay of France was third.
