Boston Marathon Results 2012: Top American Finishers Include Jason Hartmann, 4th, Mayumi Fujita, 7th

On a very hot day for racing in the 2012 Boston Marathon, the times were not record-breaking in the 116th version of the event. Kenyans swept the top three places of the Men's and Women's events.

The top American finisher was Jason Hartmann (Boulder, Colo.) in fourth place with a time of 2:14:31. Wesley Korir's time of 2:12:40 was good enough for the victory on Monday.

On the Women's side, the top American finisher was Japanese-born Mayumi Fujita (2:39:11), who came in seventh. Sheri L. Piers (Maine) came in 10th with a time of 2:41:55. Kenya's Sharon Cherop had the best time with 2:31:50.

No American has won the Boston Marathon since Lisa Larsen Weidenbach won the Women's event in 1985. The last American man to win the race was Greg Meyer in 1983. Racers from Kenya and Ethiopia have dominated the Boston Marathon in recent times, having won the men's event 23 of the last 25 Marathons and 14 of the last 16 Women's Marathons.
