Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
The story of the event was not so much the winning performance of Schult – who finally lived up to his status as world record holder after a poor record at major championships – but the silver medal of Powell. The 40 year-old American became the oldest athlete to win a World Championship medal thanks to an opening throw of 66.22. Powell, two times an Olympic bronze medallist, actually led the competition until Schult threw 68.74 in round 2, the longest ever throw at a major championships. He backed this up with two more throws worthy of gold. Delís repeated his 1983 charge. He was only seventh after four rounds but improved to fourth, then third, with his final two throws.
 These are the official results of the Men's Discus Throw event at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 27 participating athletes, with the final held on Friday September 4, 1987
