Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Disappointed by Alessandro Andrei’s defeat in the previous day’s shot put, the home crowd were delighted by the progress of the first walking event in Rome. Olympic Champion Maurizio Damilano was the favourite, and he lived up to this status by dominating a classy field. Walking each 5Km section quicker than the last, the Italian was among the leaders at halfway after which point the defending champion Canto had been disqualified. At 15Km, Damilano led by three seconds from Mercenario and Noack, but before long these two were also disqualified. With Damilano well clear in the last 3Km, the Italian spectators broke into song as he approached the stadium. Pribilinec came through for the silver as he had done four years earlier.
 These are the official results of the Men's 20 km Walk event at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. The race was held on Sunday, August 30, 1987.
