Overview by IAAF 1988_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Ingrid Kristiansen (NOR) had won the ’86 European and ’87 World titles, and her form of those two years gave her a 30 second advantage over the field. However, 1988 saw her suffering with an injured foot, which flared up after seven laps in the Olympic final, and caused her to drop out while leading. Kristiansen had set an Olympic record of 31:44.69 in the heats ahead of Bondarenko and Zhupiyeva, and these two latched on to McColgan and Ullrich. The German led to halfway, reached in 15:37.9, with the top four more than 10 seconds clear of the rest of the field. McColgan took over the pace, and lost Ullrich in the eighth kilometre and Zhupiyova in the ninth. Bondarenko, a good finisher, stayed on the Briton’s heels, and with a certain inevitability attacked with just over half a lap to go, completing her final 200m in 31.2 to win by 20m.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Based on her form of 1986-87, Norway's Ingrid Kristiansen should have been an easy winner. She had won the 1986 Europeans and the 1987 World Championships. At the Bislett Games in 1985, she broke the 10K world record with 30:59.42 and then at the same meet in 1986, she ran a Beamonesque 30:13.74 to destroy that world record. In that race, run against a field of world-class competitors, she lapped every runner. But in 1988 she was battling a foot injury and she eventually dropped out of the final, after leading the first seven laps. That left a stunned field to battle for the medals. After her withdrawal, the lead was taken by Liz McColgan (GBR), Kathrin Ullrich (GDR), Yelena Zhupiyeva (URS), and Olga Bondarenko (URS). Ullrich led at 5K, but McColgan then pushed the pace and Ullrich could not maintain it after 8,000 metres. Zhupiyeva hung on until 9K, but the race then came down to McColgan and Bondarenko. With 200 left, Bondarenko pushed past McColgan and pulled away from her for the gold medal.
