    Even though it wasn't as fast as her WR London time... I think that was probably her finest race ever ;) to come back after Athens and race again with less than 10 weeks prep is pretty incredible, and she was matched up against some talent today!

    Incredibly awesome over the last 600 metres... :eek: ;) :D

    For an athlete who doesn't normally have a finishing sprint, to break away like that after such a deadlock was just marvelous. Borderline perfect.:D

    More power to the lady

    good to see her getting over the disaster of athens. i have no idea how anyone can sprint finish after 25 and a bit miles. let alone run 26 miles!

    Hold up. She's white! Where's the international cry that there was doping involved?

    I'm very happy for Paula Radcliffe on her triumphant win at the New York Marathon. Good to see that her courage maintained her spirit. Her win was quite a feat over the Kenyans. Here in Boston they have been dominate in the Marathon for over a decade. They usually come in at 1, 2, & 3.

    She ROCKS. Best female distance runner on the planet. No two ways about it!
