Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Hartwig Gauder, unlucky to miss the 1983 championships with injury, kept the title in GDR hands with one of the finest performances in Rome. In the very hot conditions, he clocked the fifth-fastest time in history. Gauder, defending champion Weigel, Ivanenko and Llopart got away after 30Km. By 40Km, Gauder led and shortly afterwards the Spaniard was disqualified. The winner completed the race with a final 10Km of 42:23, the fastest segment of the race. Weigel gained a silver to add to his 1983 gold, while Ivanenko was almost four minutes in front of Ducceschi.
 These are the official results of the Men's 50 km Walk event at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. The race was held on Saturday September 5, 1987.
