Watch the coverage of the 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon again here.
At the age of 24, Tura has now won his first Abbott World Marathon Majors title by winning the Chicago Marathon in a time of 2:06:12.
Tura is only the second man from Ethiopia to win the race alongside 2012 champion Tsegaye Kebede in this category. A total of four women from Ethiopia have won the title, with Tirunesh Dibaba being the last to succeed in 2017.
Kenyan-born Ruth Chepngetich won the tightest women’s Chicago marathon race in six years with a strong 2:22:31 result.
Her lead of 1:49 over Emma Bates was considerable, but it was actually the closest result in the women’s race since Florence Kiplagat, who defeated Yebrgual Melese by 10 seconds in a hotly contested race in 2015.
Tatyana McFadden continued to cement her place in the Chicago Marathon record books, conquering the field to claim her ninth title in the women’s wheelchair race.
Not only is McFadden the most decorated wheelchair user of all time, with her nine titles dwarfing the six Ann Walters won between 1991 and 1996, alongside last year’s race, alongside Miriam Nibley, who won 2004, and Candace Cable who won in 1997.
Daniel Romanchuk has been embroiled in an incredible rivalry with Swiss Marcel Hug in recent years, and he took home another trophy from that fight when he won his third Chicago Marathon men’s wheelchair race.
Romanchuk is the third person to win three straight titles in the race, after Australian Kurt Fearnley, who last won in 2009, and James Briggs, who won three straight titles from 1993 to 1995.
