  Radcliffe makes winning comeback
Updated 07 November 2004, 17.34
Paula in New York
Paula Radcliffe has won the New York marathon, her first since failing to get gold in Athens.

It's just ten weeks since she tearfully dropped out of the marathon and 10,000m at the Olympics in Greece.

The win is a great comeback for Paula after lots of people thought she hadn't had time to fully recover.

She was headed the pack throughout her first New York race, and after a thrilling sprint finish against Kenyan Susan Chepkemei, grabbed victory.

She planned to start running again with a smaller race in London, but her training went so well she decided to go for a marathon.

She added before the race : "I can't change what happened in Athens and I have to move forward and do what I believe is right for me."
