NEW YORK (AP) Tatyana McFadden has shattered the New York City Marathon women's wheelchair course record in sweeping four major marathons for the third straight year.

The 26-year-old American finished Sunday in 1 hour, 43 minutes, 4 seconds. She again completed the Grand Slam of winning in London, Boston, Chicago and New York, extending her record streak.

The previous record of 1:50:24 was set by Amanda McGrory in 2011.

Ernst Van Dyk of South Africa won his second NYC Marathon title and first since 2005 in the men's race after finishing runner-up the last two years. He beat American Josh George by a second.

Defending champion Kurt Fearnley of Australia fell out of his chair early in the race and came in fifth.
