Summary by Sports-reference.com
The race was expected to be between 1987 World Champion Tatyana Samolenko (RUS), American Mary Decker-Slaney, who had disastrously fallen in the 1984 fallen, and the defending champion, Maricica Puică (ROM). Puică went out in the heats with an injured lower leg. In the final, Decker-Slaney led for the 1,800 metres, but the pack was together. The lead was then taken by unheralded American Vicki Huber, as Decker-Slaney faded, eventually finishing 10th. At 2,500 metres, Yvonne Murray of Scotland took the lead, pushing the pace to offset her lack of a sprint. Samolenko bided her time and on the final straight, powered past the field to win over Romania’s Paula Ivan, Murray getting the bronze medal.
