USA's Hasay pulls out of Boston Marathon

5th anniversary of Boston Marathon Bombing, memorial held

"Despite my team working around the clock to give me every chance to make the starting line, on this occasion it will not be possible", the 26-year-old said. After winning the New York Marathon in November - becoming the first American woman to take the title since 1977 - Marblehead, Mass., native Flanagan is a favorite in Boston.

And on the eve of the 2018 marathon, the mayor believes the tragedy has united the city.

Jordan Hasay has withdrawn from the Boston Marathon due to a stress reaction in her heel.

Huddle has been a success at shorter distances, although her only marathon result was a third-place finish at NY in 2016.Flanagan, 36, missed last year's race with an injury but won at NY with extra rest.

The women's field features American contenders Molly Huddle, Jordan Hasay, Desiree Linden and reigning New York City Marathon champion Shalane Flanagan.No US woman has won the Boston crown since Lisa Larsen Weidenbach in 1985, although Linden was second in 2011 and Hasay took third past year in her marathon debut as well as in Chicago.

The cloud on Hasey's horizon, however, is that she has reportedly been suffering from a foot injury.

Hasay crushed the American record for a marathon debut by nearly three minutes at Boston past year.

A wreath was laid at the finish line of the Boston Marathon this Sunday morning to mark the anniversary of the deadly bombing five years ago. The Nike-sponsored runner lost by 21 seconds to Kenya's Geoffrey Kirui a year ago and hopes to come out on top the second time around.

Both gathered momentum from Boston, with Kirui going on to take the world title in London and his American opponent, the London 2012 10,000m silver medallist, earning a first marathon win in Chicago.

Meanwhile, Kirui aims to repeat last year's success.
