Boyce finished in a Personal Best time of 3:48:13 to claim fifth place overall. The race for third was a three way battle between Boyce, Portugal’s Joao Vieira and Polish athlete Artur Brzozowski for much of the second half of the race. Vieira finished third with Brzozowski in fourth.

Tokyo will be Boyce’s third Olympic games, having previously competed at London 2012 and Rio 2016.
