Overview by IAAF   tokyo olympic stadium04 
Ottey. unbeaten in 56 finals since Rome 1987. consolidated her status as favourite with a 10.78w semi-final. The other semi was won in a legal 10.94 by the European Champion Krabbe. who was suddenly producing her best form of the season. In the final. Krabbe got an excellent start and edged into a clear lead. Ottey was away poorly. At halfway it was Krabbe on 6.07 from Torrence (6.16) and Ottey (6.17). The tall German was never threatened. Ottey drew level with Torrence but the American responded in the last 20m to clinch the silver. After the finish. the runners all looked up to the giant scoreboard. It wasn’t until she saw the replay that Krabbe realised she had won the unified Germany’s first world title. She jumped in the air and set off on a victory lap. The winning time was the fastest ever into a wind as strong as 3.0 metres per second. Last in heat eight was Tehani Kirby of the Northern Mariana Islands. At 14 years five days. she became the youngest-ever competitor in World Championship history. Her record will never be beaten as later IAAF regulations prevent athletes of that age from competing at senior world championships.
 These are the official results of the Women's 100 metres event at the 1991 IAAF World Championships in Tokyo. Japan. There were a total number of 59 participating athletes. with eight qualifying heats and the final held on August 27. 1991.
