Boston Marathon Results 2012: Joshua Cassidy Wins Men's Wheelchair Race In Record Time

We've already seen the effect of the near-record heat at the 2012 Boston Marathon, with slower paces than usual in both the women's and men's races, but it certainly didn't bother Canada's Josh Cassidy.

Cassidy, from Toronto, crushed his competition, finishing in 1:18:25 and setting a new course record in the process, breaking the old mark by two seconds. Second place was claimed by Kury Fearnley, who finished more than three minutes later. The official results of the men's push rim wheelchair race:

  1. Joshua Cassidy of Toronto, 1:18:25
  2. Kurt Fearnley of Australia, 1:21:39
  3. Kota Hokinoue of Japan, 1:23:26

Defending champion Masazumi Soejima finished fourth.

On the women's side, American Shirley Reilly (Arizona) took first place with a time of 1:37:36, narrowly edging Japan's Wakako Tsuchida at the finish line by just one second. It was Reilly's sixth Boston Marathon, and her first win.

Official results of the women's wheelchair race:

  1. Shirley Reilly of Arizona - 1:37:36
  2. Wakako Tsuchida of Japan - 1:37:37
  3. Diane Roy of Canada - 1:42
