Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
After another slow start to a world championship final, (400m: 63.46), Cram and Chesire speeded things up. With 450m remaining, the Briton made his bid to retain his title. He was unable to shake off González or Bile, who had set an impressive championship record in the semifinals. The Somali passed Cram on the final bend and sprinted away for a handsome victory. The defending champion was also overtaken by González, before fading to jog across the line in eighth place. The intermediate times showed the brilliance of Bile’s finish. He ran the last 1000m in 2:16.6 and the last 800m in 1:46.6. The winner, one of 15 children, was the reigning US Collegiate Champion.
 These are the official results of the Men's 1,500 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 39 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats, two semi-finals and the final held on Sunday 1987-09-06.
