Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Boosted by the 400m flat win of Thomas Schönlebe from the same lane (3) 20 minutes earlier, Sabine Busch overcame her raw hurdling style to win another gold for the GDR. It was the other GDR runner, Ulrich, who led for the first half of the race. Busch moved in front on the second bend. She made no mistakes and drew away comfortably to win with the eighth-fastest time ever. From the outside lane, Flintoff finished strongly to take the silver medal on the run-in.
 These are the official results of the Women's 400 metres Hurdles event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 35 participating athletes, with five qualifying heats, two semi-finals and the final held on Thursday 1987-09-03.
