Meb Keflezighi, of San Diego, Calif., becomes emotional after winning the 118th Boston Marathon, Monday, …

BOSTON (AP) -- The winner of the Boston Marathon men's race had the names of last year's victims written in marker on the corners of his race bib.

Meb Keflezighi (kehf-LEHZH'-gee), the first American to win the men's race since 1983, wore his official runner's bib with the names of the three people killed in last year's marathon and the name of a police officer from MIT who was allegedly killed by the bombing suspect days later.

Keflezighi, a former New York City marathon winner and Olympic medalist, says he hoped to have his picture taken with the victims' families after his win Monday, but they weren't immediately available.

The victims were 8-year-old Martin Richard, 29-year-old Krystle Campbell and 23-year-old Lu Lingzi (loo ling-zuh). MIT Officer Sean Collier was shot three days after the marathon.
