Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
World record holder Ramona Neubert had never been beaten in an heptathlon. She not only maintained that record but led her country to a sweep of the medals. Paetz, who had pushed Neubert in the previous year’s European Championships, took an initial lead with a 13.11 100m hurdles. She was overtaken by Britain’s Livermore, who high jumped 1.92 but was to fall back thereafter and drop out after three fouls in the javelin throw. Neubert was as low as seventh after the high jump, but her 23.27 200m not only gave her an overnight lead of 43 points, but also put her 29 points ahead of world record schedule. The second day saw Neubert lose contact with her world record pace but stay comfortably ahead of Paetz. The third GDR athlete, Vater, consolidated her hold on the bronze medal with a win in the final event.
 The Women's Heptathlon competition at the 1983 World Championships in Athletics in Helsinki, Finland started on Monday 8 August 1983 and ended on Tuesday 9 August 1983. There were a total number of 26 participating athletes, including six non-finishers.
