Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
The great Marita Koch never won a world 400m title. She contested the sprints in 1983 and six months before the Rome World Championships, she suddenly announced her retirement from the sport. Without her or Kratochvílová, the standard of women’s one-lap running dipped and the 1987 world title was won in a time which would not have been good enough for a medal in Helsinki. The GDR pair of Emmelmann and Müller went out fastest in the final but were closed down by Bryzgina on the second bend. The Ukrainian took the lead early in the straight and continued to pull clear for a comfortable win. This was the second world championship medal won by the Bryzgin family. The winner’s husband Viktor took a bronze in the 1983 sprint relay
 These are the official results of the Women's 400 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 41 participating athletes, with six qualifying heats and the final held on Monday 1987-08-31.
