Sabrina Mar, who should have been a lock for the Olympic gymnastics team, withdrew from competition Friday and announced her retirement from the sport. This was only a small surprise, in that Mar has long been suffering from a congenital back condition and has been unable to train effectively, especially recently. Mar, a longtime member of the SCATS team in Huntington Beach, has always been dogged by spondylolisthesis, a slippage of disks that is somewhat like a curvature of the spine.

She showed a bit of it Saturday, when she sat, composed and patient, at an interview table at the Pan American Games in Indianapolis, explaining the details of a congenital back disorder that nearly forced her out of gymnastics a year ago.
