Canadian Jacqueline Gareau crossed the finish line, breaking the ceremonial tape to honor her 1980 Boston Marathon win. Gareau was denied her chance to break the tape in 1980 because of the infamous Rosie Ruiz incident. Ruiz had snuck into the race and finished ahead of Gareau, but it wasn't until well after Gareau had finished the race that Ruiz was recognized as a fraud.
