Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
In Helsinki, Whitbread led for most of the contest before being overtaken in the final round. Four years later, the tables were turned when Whitbread was the one chasing the 71.76 second-round throw of Felke. The Briton, whose participation in the championships had been in doubt because of a shoulder injury, came close with 71.34 in the third round. Whitbread finally got it right in the fourth round with the third best throw of all-time, 73.16. Felke, the world record holder, was next to throw and fouled. In the fifth, Whitbread improved again to 76.64.
 These are the official results of the Women's Javelin Throw event at the 1987 World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 31 participating athletes, with the final held on Sunday September 6, 1987. All results were made with a rough surfaced javelin (old design).
