Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
The two closely-matched GDR runners, Wachtel and Wodars, took control of the final from the start. Wachtel raced through 200m in 26.89 before Wodars went to the front to pass the bell in 56.30. Quirot, Gurina and Kratochvílová were in touch, but the defending champion fell back on the second lap. Wachtel moved to the front again at 600m (1:25.08). Into the finishing straight, Quirot made her bid round the outside of Wachtel, who herself had drifted away from the kerb. This allowed Wodars to take the shortest route through on the inside. The three ran in a line for an instant. Wodars then moved ahead to win. Quirot never got on terms with the GDR pair and was then deprived of the bronze by Gurina.
 These are the official results of the Women's 800 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 32 participating athletes, with four qualifying heats, two semi-finals and the final held on Monday 1987-08-31.
