Summary by Sports-reference.com

In the first round of the final, Voigt settled the gold medal with 6.72 (22-0¾), which was not surpassed. American Kathy McMillan surprised with 6.66 (21-10¼) in round five to win the silver medal. Siegl could do no better than 6.59 (21-7½) in round three losing the bronze medal to Lidiya Alfeyeva (URS), who had also led the qualifying.
