Canadian wins Montreal marathon
A Canadian won Sunday's Montreal marathon.
David Gagnon-Savard of Baie St-Paul won with a time of 2:30:15, becoming the first Canadian to win the men's event since 1989.
Some 32-thousand runners took part, a record for the Montreal event.
The full marathon began on the Jacques-Cartier bridge, which covers a distance of just over 42 kilometers.
The event, held on a mostly cloudy day with some drizzle, is part of the Rock'N Roll marathon series, which features entertainment, including music, along the route to cheer runners.
US runner Joseph Chirlee was last year's Montreal marathon winner.
