Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Irina Strakhova coped best with the 86% humidity to take the first ever championship walking gold medal at this level. The 28 year-old Soviet raced conservatively, clocking 23:21 for the first half before coming home in 20:51. Even so, she was being led by Guan Ping, who was subsequently disqualified outside the stadium. The silver went to Saxby, who was in front at halfway in 22:32. Several walkers collapsed close to the finish, victims of the difficult conditions.
 These are the official results of the Women's 10 km Walk event at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. The race was held on Tuesday 1 September 1987.
