    NEW YORK — Kenya's Martin Lel, the 2003 New York City
    Marathon champion, withdrew Wednesday from next month's race
    because of a leg injury while top British runner Mara Yamauchi
    pulled out because of hip problems.

    Lel also won the 2005 London Marathon. Yamauchi captured a
    half-marathon in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Sept. 10 and had been
    planning on making her NYC Marathon debut Nov. 5.

    ING NYCM could not really afford to become less competitive, the LaSalle Banks Chicago field was already comparatively stacked before this withdrawl.
