Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Seppo Räty showed why a Finn should never be underestimated in this event. Only the 10th best qualifier, he had an embarrassing start when he stumbled and dug his javelin in on the runway just before his first throw. After two rounds, Räty lay in seventh place. The lead at this point was held by world record holder Železný at 82.20. The Finn took the lead with a magnificent national record of 82.32 in the third. That held up until round five, when Yevsyukov threw 30cm further. Räty had dipped to 76.52 and 79.44 but returned to the lead with 83.54 in the final round. He was arguably the most surprising winner of the championships
