Australian Paralympian has secured second place in the women’s wheelchair division of the prestigious Boston Marathon, earning her third podium finish in this event. De Rozario also secured third place in the Boston Marathon in 2019 and 2020, with Scaroni finishing ahead of her on both occasions. She furthered her impressive track record by clinching third place in the 2021 New York City Marathon, after winning the same event in the previous year.

Madison de Rozario, 29-year-old is the reigning Paralympic T54 marathon champion and won the London Marathon in 2018. Despite her accomplishments, the Boston Marathon has remained elusive for Australian athletes since Louise Sauvage’s fourth victory in 2001. The last Australian male to clinch the Boston Marathon was Rob de Castella in 1986.

In the men’s footrace, Kenya’s Evans Chebet secured his second consecutive win, with Gabriel Geay of Tanzania and Benson Kipruto, another Kenyan athlete, taking the second and third spots respectively. Notably, the current world record holder, Eliud Kipchoge, made his Boston debut but finished sixth.
