Overview by IAAF  1984_olympic_stadium.jpg
Ashford missed the 1980 Olympics because of the boycott, and was injured during that season, an occurrence which repeated itself during her duel with Göhr in the 1983 World Championships. After injuring herself at the US Trials Ashford was not a certainty to win, even without the GDR sprinters. Ashford was fastest in the heats (11.06) and semi-finals, beating Ottey 11.03 to 11.17. In the final the diminutive (1.58/59Kg) Brown was away quickest, but Ashford and Bolden caught her at 20m, and Ottey pulled level with Bolden at halfway. Ashford surged away, and crossed the line in splendid isolation 1.5m to the good, with Brown just holding off Ottey. Two weeks later Ashford and Göhr met in Zürich, with the American setting a world record of 10.76 ahead of Göhr’s 10.84.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The event lacked many of the world's top sprinters because of the Eastern European boycott, especially missing East Germany's Marlies Göhr. The favorite was American Evelyn Ashford, who was Göhr's arch-rival. She had been world ranked #1 in 1979 and 1981 and had won the 1979 World Cup title. In July 1983 Ashford broke the world record with 10.79. A great duel was expected at the first World Championships in 1983, but Ashford pulled up injured in the final, and Göhr won comfortably. In Los Angeles, Ashford's health was better and she won very easily, running a strong 10.97 in the final against a 1.2 m/s wind.
