Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
The clash of the two co-world record holders – Drechsler (née Daute) and Joyner-Kersee – was spoiled by an injury to Drechsler’s left knee which prevented her from taking her last two jumps. Even so, the GDR athlete would have needed to be at her best to have defeated the American, who leapt 7.36 in the third round. JoynerKersee, who won the heptathlon three days earlier, was initially given a red flag for her winning jump. This decision was reversed on closer inspection of the plasticine. Drechsler, about to lose for the first time since 1985, was pushed back into third place when Belevskaya leapt 7.14 in the fourth round.
 These are the official results of the women's long jump event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total number of 29 participating athletes, with two qualifying groups and the final held on Friday 4 September 1987.
