Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
None of the Rome world champions was more dominant than JoynerKersee in the Heptathlon. The world record holder started in style with a fast win in the 100m hurdles. After personal bests in the high jump and shot put, she was 121 points ahead of world record schedule. An excellent 200m of 22.95 – just a tenth slower than her best – left her with a world best first day score of 4256. Second at this point was Nikitina on 3918. JJK maintained a brilliant standard with a 7.14 long jump, breaking the championship record for that event. The heat took its toll in the final two events. The American was below her best in the javelin and clocked only 2:16.29 in the final event to miss a world record by 2.2 seconds. She nonetheless won from Nikitina by 564 points. The Russian had secured the silver with a personal best in the javelin. There was more good news for the USA as the bronze went to 35 year-old Jane Frederick, a veteran of the 1972 Olympic Games.
 These are the official results of the Women's Heptathlon competition at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 25 participating athletes, including six non-finishers. The competition started on August 31, 1987, and ended on September 1, 1987.
