Overview by IAAF   tokyo olympic stadium04 
Nurutdinova led through the first lap of the final (56.44), closely followed by the favourite, Quirot. Six women were still in contention around the last bend, and Quirot nosed in front on the inside to lead with 100m remaining. Nurutdinova reacted to regain a narrow advantage. Kovacs was close behind as was the teenage sensation from Mozambique, Mutola. The Soviet runner succeeded in holding off Quirot, while Mutola found that her fast finish was blocked by Kovacs. The Romanian drifted into the path of the Mozambique runner. The two collided and Kovacs fell across the finishing line. Just 0.13 separated the first four finishers. A protest was lodged on Mutola’s behalf, but this was rejected. She nevertheless set a new world junior record.
 These are the official results of the Women's 800 metres event at the 1991 IAAF World Championships in Tokyo, Japan. There were a total of 36 participating athletes, with five qualifying heats and the final held on Monday August 26, 1991.
