The Israeli women’s marathon champion placed 264th among the 31,456 runners in the New York City Marathon. She achieved her personal best by three minutes in Sunday’s race, but Nili Abramski was nearly disqualified as an unauthorized runner. A bag containing her official race number and running clothes was stolen before the start, and Ambramski was forced to run the 26.2 miles in her underwear.
