Overview by IAAF   tokyo olympic stadium04 
Nineteen-ninety-one saw an improvement in the standard of women’s 400m running. and at the forefront was Pérec. The long-legged Frenchwoman had already won the European Cup in the world’s fastest time for four years. In Tokyo she went even quicker despite having to contest four races in four days. Pérec (lane 3) started fast in the final. passing 200m in 22.82. She was tracked by European Champion Breuer. Pérec clocked 35.12 at 300m and was nearly three metres up on the German (35.39). Breuer. still a junior. was poised to attack on the final straight. Though she began to lose form. the Frenchwoman actually pulled further away from Breuer in the closing stages of the race. Bryzgina. the defending champion. held third place until the last metres of the race when she was outdipped by Myers. “The race was very hard.” said Pérec. “I knew I had to come out of the second turn ahead because if I am ahead. I win. Talent is not enough.”
 These are the official results of the Women's 400 metres event at the 1991 IAAF World Championships in Tokyo. Japan. There were a total of 37 participating athletes. with five qualifying heats and the final held on Tuesday 27 August 1991.
