Overview by IAAF    stadio olimpico rome
In the best mass-quality high jump in history, a jump of 2.32 – the winning height in 1983 – was good enough only for seventh place. At 2.35, four of the seven men were successful, with Olympic gold and silver medallists, Mögenburg and Sjöberg having no failures. Paklin failed with his first attempt at 2.38, before world record holder Sjöberg maintained his perfect record to take the lead. Avdyeyenko also failed, as did Mögenburg. The two Soviets managed 2.38 on their third trial, while Mögenburg passed his remaining attempts to try unsuccessfully for 2.40. The leading three also failed 2.40, meaning that Sweden took the gold while the two Soviets shared the silver. Coming as it did on the final day of the World Championships, the contest was frequently interrupted by medal ceremonies, during which the athletes were not permitted to jump.
 These are the official results of the Men's High Jump event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 38 participating athletes, with two qualifying groups and the final held on Sunday September 6, 1987.
