Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
A shadow was cast over the event when Jones, an odds-on favourite to complete a sprint double, suffered a spasm in her back during her semifinal, collapsed and was stretchered off the track. There had been an earlier setback when defending champion Pintusevich-Block failed to start in her quarter-final, while Merlene Ottey, a medallist at this distance at all six previous editions of the World Championships and still a contender, withdrew after a positive doping test for nandrolone was revealed. Despite all that, the final produced a worthy champion in Miller, who after moving to eighth on the world all-time list over 100m with 10.79 became the 11th swiftest ever at 200m as she improved from 22.10 to 21.77 and won by the biggest margin in a global 200 since Fanny Blankers-Koen at the 1948 Olympics. She ran the first 100m in 11.10, the second in 10.67. McDonald, drawn in lane 8 but finishing in lane 9, clocked a personal best of 22.22 for silver with Frazer and Philipp dead-heating for the bronze.
 These are the official results of the Women's 200 metres event at the 1999 IAAF World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 47 participating athletes, with seven qualifying heats, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final held on Friday 27 August 1999 at 19:45h.

Women's 200m Final

The USA's Inger Miller won clearly with 21.77, a world season's best. Thus Miller obtains her second medal at this Championships after her silver in the 100 metres. The other medals were obtained by two of the three Jamaicans in the final, with an unusual second bronze also being awarded: Beverly McDonald took the silver with 22.22, a new personal best, and Merlene Frazer and Andrea Philipp of Germany were both awarded bronze medals after the jury of appeal had reviewed the photo-finish images and determining that both athletes had crossed the line at exactly the same time of 22.26. Both of the Jamaican athletes had already won world medals in relay events but these are their first in single races.

Women 200m semi-final

The injury of Marion Jones was the negative feature of the semifinals of the female 200 metres. The reigning World Champion at 100 metres competed in the second heat. After reaching the straight in third position, she fell injured 50 metres from home and had to be taken away by the Medical Services. Due to the injury of Jones (who seemed to be on her way to obtain four medals in these World Championships) the final now appears more open. The first heat was won by Inger Miller (USA), the 100 metres runner-up, with 22.17, ahead of the German Andrea Philipp, who obtained a new personal best. The Jamaican Merlene Frazer came first in the second heat clocking 22.18, ahead of the Panamerican Champion Debbie ferguson (BAH). The other qualifiers were Beverly McDonald and Juliet Campbell (JAM), Fatima Yusuf (NGR) and Laurren Hewitt (AUS).

Women's 200m Quarter Finals

Most of the favourites qualified safely through the second round. Marion Jones, winner in Seville of the 100 metres and best world mark of the season at the 200m distance, created a good impression winning the first heat in 22.45, three hundredths of a second ahead of the Jamaican Frazer. Her closest rival, Inger Miller (USA) won comfortably in the third heat (22.49) with a great advantage over the Russian Goncharenko (22.77). The fastest heat was the second one, dominated by the Jamaican Beverly McDonald with 22.26. This heat produced a new national record for the Italian Levorato and three personal bests (Fatima Yusuf, Muriel Hurtis and Esther Moller). Finally, Debbie Ferguson, from Bahamas, won the fourth heat with 22.53. In this race the world champion in Athens, the Ukranian Zhanna Pintusevich-Tarnopolskaya, didn't compete after the problems that she had experienced in the first qualification round.

Women 200m First Round

The two women that starred in the 100 metres final, American Marion Jones and Inger Miller, advanced in the first round without problems and promise to repeat here the duel they had in the short race. Jones won the sixth heat in 22.69 while Miller took the third in 22.92. The world champion in Athens, the Ukranian Zhanna Pintusevich, had problems to qualify. She finished fifth in the fourth heat in 23.19. She was one of the four athletes who advanced by time. In this heat the winner was the Jamaican Merlene Frazer in 22.80. The best time of the morning was for the Jamaican Beverly McDonald, who won the second heat with 22.52. The rest of winners were Australian Tania Van Heer in the first heat (22.66), Debbie Ferguson (BAH) in the fifth (22.68) and Nigerian Mercy Nku in the seventh (22.84).
