This was one tight race.

Marcel Hug of Switzerland narrowly edged a pair of challengers in a thrilling finish to the men’s wheelchair race at the 2016 Boston Marathon. Hug, ten-time champion Ernst Van Dyk of South Africa, and Kurt Fearnley of Australia were all hauling it to the finish line on Boylston.

Hug finished in 1:24:05 for his second straight Boston Marathon victory. He beat his 2015 finish time of 1:29:53.
