Delilah Defeats Olympians in Manchester

Olympians Lisa Uhl and Diane Nukuri Johnson were left watching Delilah DiCrescenzo cross the finish line first at the 76-year-old Manchester Road Race on Thanksgiving morning. ¬†As reported by Road Results Weekly, Delilah used her previous experience on the course to launch a perfectly-timed kick and earned a five-second margin of victory over Uhl. Runner-up in 2010, DiCrescenzo ran 16-seconds faster than that performance to notch Thursday’s thanks-meriting win.

The New York City-based athlete came to one of the most historic professional races in America after the NYRR Dash to the Finish 5k was washed out by Superstorm Sandy the day before the New York City Marathon. But DiCrescenzo looked none the worse for not racing in her hometown, and added her name to a Manchester winners-list that includes Worlds and Olympic silver medalist Sally Kipyego and Worlds and Olympic bronze medalist Shalane Flanagan, as well as other American superstars such as Deena Kastor and Lynn Jennings.

After using speed to defeat the 10,000m and marathon Olympians in Connecticut, Delilah now plans to spend the next few weeks working on her strength-based fitness.
