Greatness and Chicago sports seem to go hand-in-hand. 

Brigid Kosgei won the women's elite title at Sunday's 2019 Chicago Marathon, clocking in at a swift 2:14:04. The 25-year-old broke the previous marathon world record, which Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25) set at the London Marathon in 2003. Kosgei also won the women's elite title at the 2018 Chicago Marathon. 

Kosgei and Radcliffe came together for a celebratory photo after Sunday's race.

Lawrence Cherono won the men's elite title with a time of 2:05:45, narrowly beating Dejene Debela, who finished one second back.
