Athletics: Radcliffe hits form.

PAULA RADCLIFFE once again found New York the ideal place to bounce back from Olympic disappointment as she won the ING New York City marathon for the third time.

The world record holder led from start to finish, wearing down the strongest field in the race's 40-year history to cruise home unopposed over the final four miles to clock two hours 23 minutes and 56 seconds.

"To win three is really special to me," Radcliffe said. "New York is just a place I love to come but it was different this year."
