Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Once again the United States were thwarted by Eastern Europe. Surprisingly, world record holder Willie Banks and his compatriot Charlie Simpkins did not make the final. World Indoor Champion Conley did, and drew the favourable final spot in the jumping order. But before Conley could take his first jump, European Champion Markov went out to 17.70w. In round two, the Bulgarian improved to 17.73. Kovalenko was a distant second at 17.38, with Conley one centimetre behind. In the fifth round, the mop-haired Markov powered down the runway and hit the board 4cm from the plasticine before leaping out to a legal 17.92, the second longest jump ever. Conley and Sakirkin both overtook Kovalenko for the other medals. The three components of the winning jump were measured at 6.50, 5.30 and 6.12.
 These are the official results of the Men's Triple Jump event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 32 participating athletes, with two qualifying groups and the final held on Monday August 31, 1987.
