Paula Radcliffe capped a sensational year by setting a new women's world best in winning the Chicago Marathon on Sunday.
The Bedford runner followed up her gold medals on the track at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships with her second marathon win of the year.
She crossed the finish line in Chicago's Grant Park in two hours, 17 minutes and 18 seconds - 89 seconds inside the old record of Kenyan Catherine Ndereba.
Radcliffe picked up a cool $150,000 (£94,000) for setting a new world mark, with a further $100,000 for finishing first.
Radcliffe was two minutes quicker at halfway than in London
In the men's race, world record holder Khalid Khannouchi won in Chicago for a fourth time.
But the Moroccan-born athlete, who now runs for the United States, narrowly missed his own world record set in last year's event.
Radcliffe's victory added to a bulging portfolio of achievements this year.
