SEATTLE, JULY 22 -- Jackie Joyner-Kersee, the Olympic gold medalist and world-record holder in the heptathlon, led the Goodwill Games heptathlon after the first day but was well off her own world-record pace.

After disappointing performances in the shot put and 200 meters today, Joyner-Kersee had 3,968 points, 296 behind her record pace, set in Seoul at the 1988 Olympics. Three events -- the long jump, javelin and 800 meters -- remain Monday.

Joyner-Kersee ran the first event, the 100-meter hurdles, in an excellent time of 12.79 seconds, and exceeded her performance at the Olympics with a high jump of 6 feet 1 1/2 inches. But she fell way off her pace with a 45-foot 8 1/2-inch shot put and a time of 24.28 seconds in the 200, her worst performances in those events in 10 heptathlons dating from 1985. In Seoul, she put the shot 51 feet 4 1/4 inches and she ran the 200 in 22.56 seconds.

"I was very surprised at the time {in the 200}," Joyner-Kersee said. "I'm not where I should be. I'm not going to say I can't break the record, but I feel it would be difficult."

In other events, Ana Quirot of Cuba, ranked No. 1 in the world last year, won the women's 400 meters in 50.34 seconds; Winthrop Graham of Jamaica won the 400-meter hurdles over American David Patrick in 48.78 seconds to 49.00 for Patrick; and Paul Williams of Canada won the men's 5,000 meters in 13:33.52. Showdown

Finally, it's Carl Lewis and Leroy Burrell against each other and the clock.

The highly anticipated confrontation between the world's top two sprinters happens Monday night at the University of Washington's Husky Stadium in the 100-meter dash at the Goodwill Games.

Lewis and Burrell are undefeated this season, and their matchup is the most eagerly awaited in the 100 since Lewis and Johnson met in the Seoul Games. The two have tried to downplay the race's importance, but the winner will establish himself as the current world leader and will go a long way in determining the year-end world rankings.

"We don't look at this as the grudge match of the century or anything," Lewis said.

"I don't look at it like Carl is ready to be beaten," Burrell said. "I look more at myself and see if I'm ready to run the type of race I need to run to win."Easy as 1-2-3

Zoya Ivanova led a Soviet sweep of the medals in the women's marathon at the Goodwill Games, winning in 2 hours 34 minutes 37 seconds. Ivanova, 38, and Irina Bogacheva ran side-by-side for virtually all of the first 17 miles of the 26-mile, 385-yard race. Ivanova, winner of 10 of 23 marathons, then charged in front as her teammate began to wilt in the heat and humidity.

Ivanova was the favorite, having been the only runner in the elite nine-woman field with a time under 2:30. Bogacheva finished in 2:36:24.7; Ramilya Baragulova was third in 2:37:40.70.

Lisa Kindelan of Kirkland, Wash., a last-minute replacement, was the quickest American, placing fourth in 2:42:05. . . .

Dave Wharton and Patrick Kuehl of East Germany swam to what is believed to be the first gold-medal dead heat in a major meet in six years, in the men's 400-meter individual medley.

"I could see him the whole race," Wharton said, "and knowing I was behind the last 50, I put my head down and went. When I saw the time, it was pretty incredible."

Wharton, of Warminster, Pa., a silver medalist in this event at Seoul, and Kuehl each completed the 400 individual medley in 4:17.74. Officials said they believed it was the first dead heat for first place in a major meet since Americans Nancy Hogshead and Carrie Steinseifer tied for the gold medal in the 100-meter freestyle at the 1984 Olympics.
