Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
Windy conditions on the last days of the championships blew Bettine Jahn to history’s fastest time but prevented the mark from being accepted as a record. The 25 year-old GDR hurdler, only third in the previous year’s European Championships, ran a perfect race from lane 1 to clock 12.35, 0.01 quicker than the 1980 world record of Grayna Rabsztyn. For a moment the stadium was celebrating the third world record of the championships. Then the following wind was confirmed as 2.4 metres per second. A strong second was Jahn’s taller compatriot Knabe, who closed down on the leader over the last two hurdles.
 These are the official results of the Women's 100 metres Hurdles event at the 1983 IAAF World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. There were a total number of 35 participating athletes, with five qualifying heats, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final held on Saturday 1983-08-13.
