Radcliffe romps to New York win

Defending champion Paula Radcliffe stormed to victory in the New York marathon nearly two minutes ahead of her nearest rival, Ludmila Petrova.

America's Kara Goucher finished third on her marathon debut.

Radcliffe became the second woman to win the race three times - Norway's Grete Waitz won a record nine times, the last in 1988.

Petrova, 40, was the oldest woman to finish in the top two since Britain's Priscilla Welch won in 1987 aged 42.

Goucher become the first American to make the podium since Anne Marie Letko was third in 1994.

World record holder Radcliffe, who also won in 2001, came home in a time of two hours 23 minutes 56 seconds.

Petrova, the the 2000 champion, clocked 2:25:43, just ahead of Goucher (2:25:53).
