Joan Benoit Samuelson, the 1984 Olympic gold medalist and the American record-holder for the women's marathon, withdrew today from Sunday's New York City Marathon because of back and leg injuries. "It's very disappointing, because I had been focusing on the race for so long," she said by telephone from her home in Freeport, Me. Samuelson said she made her decision today after experiencing discomfort during a six-mile run. "It was a struggle," she said.

Joan Benoit Samuelson and Ingrid Kristiansen are two women whose running careers have intersected at crucial junctures. It has happened in the marathon twice--the 1984 Olympics and the 1985 Chicago Marathon. Both times Samuelson frustrated Kristiansen. They will meet again today in the 93rd running of the Boston Marathon, and again it comes at a significant moment for both. For Samuelson, her performance in this race will go a long way in determining her future in the sport.

Joan Benoit Samuelson is an athlete who has come to personify grit. She is an uncompromising runner and a stoic competitor. This we knew. What we saw Sunday in the New York City Marathon was a closer look at Samuelson, the human being. For the first time since 1981, Samuelson lost a marathon race. The 1984 Olympic champion had two episodes of bad luck Sunday that may have cost her second place--an unsuccessful battle with stomach cramps and untimely collision late in the race.
