Overview by IAAF    stadio olimpico rome
Panetta showed he had fully recovered from his run in the 10,000m five days earlier when he won his heat in the fastest ever time for a preliminary. The Italian, nicknamed “Rambo”, ran the final from the front at a pace close to the world record. His biggest opponent, Kipkemboi, fell at the hurdle on the backstraight of the fourth lap. This seemed to spur on the Italian, who passed 2000m in 5:26.62 and continued to run strongly. Only in the final lap did he start to lose form, but he still had enough energy to start celebrating before he reached the finishing line. Yet he still clocked the fourth-fastest time ever.
 These are the official results of the Men's 3.000 metres Steeplechase event at the inaugural 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 38 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats and the final held on Saturday 1987-09-05.
