South African Ernst van Dyk and Japan's Wakako Tsuchida led all the way in winning the Boston Marathon wheelchair divisions on Monday. Van Dyk finished in one hour, 26 minutes and 49 seconds to win in Boston for the seventh time. Though it was the second slowest time of his seven victories, no one was near him when he crossed the finish line on Boylston Street.
