Those watching the Boston Marathon on Monday undoubtedly noticed American fan favorite Meb Keflezighi crossing the finish line in 8th place—and doing so with a memorable gesture of sportsmanship.
Keflezighi happened to cross around the same time as Hillary Dionne, an elite amateur runner who finished the elite women’s race in 15th place in a time of 2:40:42. Meb grabbed Dionne’s hand as they crossed the finish line and thrust it in the air, providing a memorable moment for both.
Dionne was a part of the elite amateur panel that took part in a press gathering at Tracksmith headquarters just a few days earlier. Here’s more about her—and the finish-line moment.
