Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
After her 100m win, Gladisch was a solid favourite. However, the centre of attention was Florence Griffith, who had placed fourth in Helsinki. In 27° heat and 73% humidity, the 27 year-old American won her heat and semi in a skin-tight bodysuit complete with hood. Griffith’s running was also notable, for she clocked the fastest semifinal time and looked as if she might possibly spoil the chances of a GDR sprint double. In the final, Gladisch was drawn in lane 3 with Ottey and Griffith directly outside her. An 11.09 100m bend by the GDR runner gave her a big advantage at halfway. Only Griffith – now in conventional garb – was able to gain ground on Gladisch in the straight. In the process, she cracked 22 seconds and overhauled Ottey, who therefore collected her second Rome bronze medal. The winning time was just 0.03 slower than the world record shared by Marita Koch and Heike Drechsler, and the winner was coached by the same man as Koch: Wolfgang Meier.
 These are the official results of the Women's 200 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 31 participating athletes, with four qualifying heats and the final held on Thursday 1987-09-03.
