Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Knowledgeable observers had pencilled in Kipkoech as a probable winner after his victory at the 1987 African Championships, where he clocked 28:34.77 at high altitude. He dominated the race, unsettling the other runners with a 60-second fifth lap before allowing the pace to slow to 14:13.07 at halfway. At this point, Kipkoech surged again, this time sustaining the pace. He clocked 2:36.8 for the seventh kilometre, by which time he had dropped Panetta, the only man who had tried to cover the change of pace. The Kenyan, wearing a white headband, won in a championship record, having run the second half of the race in an unbelievable 13:25.57. Several runners were confused at the finish by the lap marker which had been displaying only the number of laps required by the leaders. As a result, some stopped a lap too early and some, like Vainio, who would have placed in the first six, did not bother to restart.
 The men's 10,000 metres event featured at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 30 participating athletes, with the final being held on 29 August 1987.
