Winners of the New York City Marathon include 35 men and 30 women who have won the open division, and 9 men and 7 women who have won the wheelchair division. The New York City Marathon, one of the six World Marathon Majors, is a 26.2-mile (42.2 km) race which has been held in New York City since 1970. It is the largest marathon in the world; since 2013, every race except one has had over 50,000 finishers. Gary Muhrcke won the first race in a time of 2:31:38. The following year, Beth Bonner became the first female finisher, winning the race in 2:55:22. Norwegian runner Grete Waitz dominated the women's marathon between 1978 and 1989, winning nine of the eleven races during that period; her nine wins are the most of any runner at the New York City Marathon. In the men's race, Bill Rodgers (pictured) has won the most times, doing so in four consecutive years, from 1976 to 1979. A wheelchair race has been held since 2000, when 72 people finished: Kamel Ayari won the men's race, and Anh Nguyen Thi Xuan won the women's. (Full list...)

Wyoming Territory

The Wyoming Territory was an organized incorporated territory in the western United States that existed from July 25, 1868, until July 10, 1890, when it was admitted to the Union as the state of Wyoming.

This picture is a historical depiction of the Wyoming Territory's coat of arms, as illustrated by American engraver Henry Mitchell in State Arms of the Union, published in 1876 by Louis Prang. The escutcheon depicts a railroad train in front of a mountainous landscape in the top half, agricultural tools in the bottom left, and an arm holding a sword in the bottom right. Under the shield is the Latin motto Cedant arma togae (misspelled in this depiction as Oedant arma toga), literally meaning "Let arms yield to the toga", but often translated as "Let military power be subject to civil authority".
