Stephen Sambu, Mamitu Daska win BAA 10K

Boston Marathon champion Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia returned to the city Sunday for the Boston Athletic Association 10K. Following his second-place finish behind Kenya’s Stephen Sambu, Desisa presented his Boston Marathon medal to Mayor Thomas Menino to honor the city and those killed and injured in the April 15 terrorist bombings.

“My heartfelt condolences go out to all the families who lost loved ones, and to all those who were injured I wish a full and fast recovery,” said Desisa to the crowd on the Boston Common. “We promise that next year in 2014 we will return to Boston to show our support and to show that our spirit and our commitment to freedom is stronger than any act of violence.”
