Foreigners continued their domination of the New York City Marathon but the winners weren't Juma Ikangaa or Grete Waitz. Douglas Wakiihuri, a Kenyan who trains in Japan, was the overall winner and Poland's Wanda Panfil, who lives in Mexico, was the women's winner in Sunday's race which was plagued by heat and humidity. It was the third consecutive marathon victory for each.

The death of a 39-year-old runner in the London Marathon may lead to a coroner's inquest, even if an autopsy confirms he died of natural causes. Robert Ward died of an apparent heart attack Sunday while running to raise money for a hospital cancer unit. The death was the first in the 10-year history of the London Marathon, dampening enthusiasm over the fact that a world record 24,871 finished. Scotsman Allister Hutton won in a comparatively fast 2 hours 10 minutes, 10 seconds.
