BOSTON (AP) -- Tatyana McFadden of the United States has won the women's wheelchair race at the Boston Marathon on her 25th birthday. It was the second straight year she won the race.

McFadden listened Monday as ''The Star-Spangled Banner'' played on Boylston Street one year after the bombings that left three dead and more than 260 injured.

She crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds.

McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child before starring at the University of Illinois.

She also won the 2013 New York City Marathon women's wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. No other athlete has won those four races in the same year.
