Tatyana McFadden has won the women's wheelchair race at the Boston Marathon.

It was her fourth victory in a row.

McFadden completed the 26.2-mile course from Hopkinton to Copley Square in an official time of 1 hour, 42 minutes, 16 seconds. That is 8:10 behind the record pace because of a headwind.

McFadden was born in Russia and adopted by an American woman as a small child.

The 26-year-old McFadden lives in Clarksville, Maryland.

She was wearing a singlet honoring Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy killed in the 2013 finish line bombings.
