Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Defending champion Foster confirmed his status as favourite by winning the first heat in a championship record of 13.20. Bryggare unfortunately injured himself warming up for the final, leaving double Commonwealth Champion McKoy as Foster’s biggest threat. In the final the Canadian got a great start, but hit the first three hurdles badly and was out of contention. Foster’s nearest challengers were a pair of 20 year-old Britons, Ridgeon and Jackson. Ridgeon actually gained slightly on the American in the second half of the race, but said he dislocated a toe in his right foot in the process.
These are the official results of the Men's 110 metres Hurdles event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 39 participating athletes, with five qualifying heats, two semi-finals and the final held on Thursday September 3, 1987.
