Winners of Boston Are Winners, Period

Let's not forget one important thing about the race: the winners! This year it was Lelisa Desisa (Ethiopia). Another incredible story is the 1946 winner, Stylianos Kyriakides (Greece), who used the race quite deliberately to raise awareness and money for his war-torn country's recovery.

While we're at it, let's not forget Vanderlei de Lima (Brazil) who got attacked on the course in the 2004 Olympic marathon in London and lost his shot at gold and got the bronze.
