Meb Keflezighi won the 2014 Boston Marathon Monday before thousands of cheering spectators on hand in a show of defiance to last year's twin bombings near the finish line that killed three spectators and injured more than 260 others.
美国选手凯夫莱齐吉赢得2014年波士顿马拉松冠军。成千上万旁观者在场欢呼助威。去年举行波士顿马拉松时,终点线附近发生两次爆炸,导致三人死亡,数百人受伤。

Keflezighi is the first American to win the legendary race since Greg Meyer in 1983. Pumping his fist in exhilaration, the Eritrean-born Keflezighi crossed the finish line Monday in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. In this 118th edition of the race, he beat runner-up Wilson Chebet of Kenya by 11 seconds.
自从美国选手梅耶1983年获得波士顿马拉松冠军后,凯夫莱齐吉是第一位获得这项赛事冠军的美国人。这位出生厄立特里亚的美国人跑过终点线时挥拳以示庆祝。他用两小时8分37秒跑完全程。这是第118届波士顿马拉松比赛。第二名肯尼亚选手彻贝特比他慢了11秒。

Kenyan Rita Jeptoo won the women's race for the third time, with a record-breaking time of 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. Ethiopian Buzunesh Deba finished second, just over a minute later.
肯尼亚选手杰普图第三次获得女子冠军,并创造了这项赛事的新纪录:两小时18分57秒。比杰普图慢了一分钟的埃塞俄比亚选手德巴获得第二名。

This year's race included an expanded field of runners - 36,000, to include about 6,000 from last year who were not allowed to cross the finish line because of the bombings.
今年的参赛选手大为增多,大约3万六千人参加了比赛,其中包括在去年比赛中因发生爆炸而没有跑过终点线的六千人。(voanews)
