Canada’s Krista DuChene battled the elements to finish third in the women’s race Monday at the 2018 Boston Marathon.
The 41-year-old mother of three from Strathroy, Ont., finished in a time of two hours 44 minutes 20 seconds.
Desiree Linden of the United states won in 2:39:54.
Times were slower than usual due to persistent rain in Boston.
The only Canadian to win the race was Jacqueline Gareau in 1980.
Canada also earned a top-10 finish in the men’s race, with Hamilton’s Reid Coolsaet finishing ninth in 2:25:02
Yuki Kawauchi finished first to earn Japan’s first Boston Marathon title since 1987.
