    History was made Sunday at the 2017 Chicago Marathon as 31-year-old Galen Rupp became the first American to win the event in 15 years in 2:09:20, while Rupp's fellow American and Nike Oregon Project teammate Jordan Hasay finished a stunning third in the women's race in 2:20:57. With the time, Hasay broke Joan Samuelson's Chicago Marathon U.S. course record and is now the second-fastest American woman in history.

    If Galen Rupp's second-place finish at April's Boston Marathon was indicative of what the American is capable of when training doesn't go according to plan, then Sunday's Chicago Marathon has the potential to be a historic performance for the 31-year-old. A win would seal the first victory for an American man since 2002.

    The 40th edition of the Chicago Marathon is this Sunday, and the fields are as loaded as ever. The men's race features the world record holder Dennis Kimetto, defending champion Abel Kirui, plus Olympic silver medalist Feyisa Lelisa. And the women's field features 2:17 marathoner Tirunesh Dibaba, the third-fastest woman in world history, plus two-time defending champion Florence Kiplagat. But the success of the Nike Oregon Project's Galen Rupp and Jordan Hasay at this spring's Boston Marathon has us wondering -- is it time for an American to win this race again?
