American Shalane Flanagan wins women’s New York City Marathon in the wake of deadly truck attack

first_imgWABC-TV(NEW YORK) — Shalane Flanagan was the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon in 40 years, making history just five days after a truck ramming attack killed eight people and wounded others in lower Manhattan.Flanagan, 36, finished the race (her 10th marathon) in 2:26:53.  Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor of Kenya won the men’s race in 2:10:53.Runners from across the country and around the world competed in the New York City Marathon on Sunday.More than 51,000 people participated in this year’s marathon, while another 2.5 million spectators lined New York City streets as the world-famous race had runners through all five boroughs. The route began on Staten Island, entered Manhattan via the Queensboro Bridge at East 59th Street and ended in Central Park.The marathon took place several miles north of the scene of Tuesday’s deadly attack, in which a man driving a Home Depot truck plowed into pedestrians and cyclists on a busy bike path near West Houston Street and the West Side Highway. The suspect drove south for about a mile before crashing into a school bus near Chambers Street, just across from Stuyvesant High School, authorities said.He then emerged from the car with a paintball gun and a pellet gun, allegedly shouting “Allahu Akbar,” an Arabic phrase that translates to “God is Greatest,” before being shot in the abdomen by New York City Police Department Officer Ryan Nash, authorities said.The suspect, identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, was transported to a hospital for treatment and is expected to survive. He is believed to have acted alone, authorities said.According to a federal criminal complaint filed Wednesday by prosecutors in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Saipov was allegedly “inspired” to commit the attack after watching ISIS videos on his cellphone and he “wanted to kill as many people as he could.”Saipov also wanted the black-and-white flag of ISIS displayed in his hospital room after allegedly revealing to authorities he had planned to strike more people on a bridge had he not crashed into a school bus, according to the complaint.“During the interview with law enforcement, Saipov requested to display ISIS’s flag in his hospital room and stated that he felt good about what he had done,” the complaint states.Saipov was wheeled into court for his initial appearance before a judge Wednesday night. He was charged with providing support to ISIS and violence and destruction of motor vehicles, making him eligible for the death penalty. A plea was not entered.Saipov has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. ET.“He did this in the name of ISIS, and along with the other items recovered at the scene was some notes that further indicate that,” John Miller, NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, said Wednesday morning. “He appears to have followed almost exactly to a ‘T’ the instructions that ISIS has put out in its social media channels before with instructions to their followers on how to carry out such an attack.”In the wake of Tuesday’s incident, which is being investigated as a terror attack, state and local authorities beefed up security across New York City and along the marathon route for Sunday’s race.At a press conference Wednesday, New York City Police Department Chief Carlos Gomez announced the deployment of additional sand trucks, blocker vehicles, observation teams, rooftop observation posts and counter-sniper teams throughout Manhattan as well as the boroughs. There were also be heavy weapons teams at fixed locations along the race route that will be equipped with mobile response capabilities, in case they are needed elsewhere.“It will be the most ever deployed at this event,” Gomez said.In addition to regular uniformed police, officers in civilian attire were “mixing in with the crowds to detect any suspicious activity,” Gomez said. K-9s and counterterrorism officers will also be deployed along the marathon route, as well as aviation patrols above.Meanwhile, the New York State Police and the New York National Guard respectively doubled and tripled personnel deployment throughout the city. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department more than doubled personnel deployment and add patrols at airports, bridges, tunnels and other high-profile locations.The New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services activated the State Emergency Operations Center and closely coordinated with local and federal officials. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority added personnel and patrols at key locations throughout the city, including subways, buses, tunnels and bridges.“Despite the cowardly attack in lower Manhattan this week, athletes from around the globe are flocking to this great city to run the New York City Marathon this weekend,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Saturday, laying out the enhanced security plans.“While there is no apparent threat, we are ramping up security across New York City with patrols and resources from various state law enforcement agencies out of an abundance of caution. These brave men and women will be out in full force to ensure the safety of New Yorkers during tomorrow’s marathon, and I look forward to another year of this storied New York tradition,” Cuomo added.Authorities reminded residents and tourists to stay alert to their surroundings and report any suspicious activity.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Donald Glover pokes fun at Kanye, Migos and “Star Wars” as “SNL” host

first_imgCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Related Will Heath/NBC(NEW YORK) — Donald Glover pulled double duty on Saturday Night Live over the weekend: the actor hosted the late-night sketch show, while his alter ego, Childish Gambino, performed as the musical guest.During his monologue, Glover brought up the fact that he auditioned for SNL twice, but never got cast. He set out to prove he had the talent for the job, but bumbled his way through a series of skills, including skateboarding and playing the clarinet.In a parody of the hip-hop group Migos, Glover played a member of “Friendos” as they rap about their therapy sessions with a woman named Angela. The real A$AP Rocky made a cameo as Friendos left their therapist’s office.After all the headlines Kanye West made in the past week, it was inevitable that SNL would address the rapper’s antics, and the show did just that in a sketch called “A Kanye Place,” a parody of the current hit horror film A Quiet Place.In that skit, Glover and others appear as a group of people who are forced to keep quiet in order to avoid getting abducted by monsters, but can’t keep their mouths shut as Glover updates them on Kanye’s actions, including his tweets, his controversial statements on slavery and his new song with “poopity scoop” in the lyrics.Glover also spoofed his upcoming role as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. In the sketch, Lando holds a summit for all the black people in the galaxy but only four people show up, a not so subtle commentary on the lack of black characters in the Star Wars movies.In addition to appearing in a number of other skits, Glover also performed two new songs — “Saturday” and “This Is America” — as Childish Gambino.last_img read more
