Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Nineteen eighty-seven saw the emergence of Reynolds, who cut the world low-altitude best to 44.10 and clocked a total of eight sub-44.50s prior to the World Championships. Unfortunately, the American was weakened by intestinal problems in Rome and struggled to qualify for the final. Egbunike, meanwhile, impressed greatly with a 44.26 semifinal (21.11 at halfway). The Nigerian (lane 7) went out quickest in the final but was tracked by Schönlebe (lane 3), who had placed sixth as a teenager in Helsinki. The tall, bespectacled East German – unbeaten all year – proved to be much stronger and passed Egbunike in the last 60m to win. He broke his own European record in the process. Despite his problems, Reynolds took the bronze.
 These are the official results of the Men's 200 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 47 participating athletes, with six qualifying heats and the final held on Thursday 1987-09-03.
