The women's marathon at the 1984 Summer Olympics, held on August 5, 1984, was the first ever marathon for women in the history of the Olympic Games. A total number of 44 athletes completed the race, with Eleonora Mendonca from Brasil finishing in last position in 2:52:19. There were fifty competitors from 28 countries (six of them did not finish). Joan Benoit took an early lead and stretched her 6 seconds lead at kilometer 5 to 51 seconds at kilometer 15. The second pack included Grete Waitz, Lorraine Moller, Sylvie Ruegger, Lisa Martin, Priscilla Welch, Ingrid Kristiansen, and Rosa Mota. Benoit extended her advantage to nearly 2 minutes by kilometer 25 and won the gold medal by 1:26 over Waitz. Mota finished strongly for the bronze medal ahead of Kristiansen. The race is still remembered for the stunning entrance in the Olympic Stadium of Gabriela Andersen-Schiess from Switzerland. She was dehydrated, and dragged herself toward the finish line for the last 400 meters. To many the Swiss runner became a symbol of courage, although she finished in 37th place.
