Overview by IAAF   tokyo olympic stadium04 
Defending Champion Dorovskikh (née Samolenko) had taken the Olympic title after her Rome win, but thereafter had been out of action for maternity reasons. Both she and her teammate Romanova had little form so far in 1991, but they looked ominously easy in the final. The race started at a reasonable pace (2:51.83 at 1000m), but slowed in the second kilometre. The major break came from European Champion Murray, the pre-meeting favourite. She took off with 550m remaining and led at the bell with just three others – Sirma, Romanova and Dorovskikh – for company. The Briton looked beaten on the last backstraight when Sirma went to the front. Romanova then made a move at 2800m. Dorovskikh followed and the two battled it out down the homestraight. The 30 year-old Dorovskikh proved the stronger. Sirma took the bronze – the first world championship medal to be won by an African woman. “I was prepared to run a sit-and-kick type of race, or one with a fast pace from the start,” said Dorovskikh.
 These are the official results of the Women's 3.000 metres event at the 1991 IAAF World Championships in Tokyo, Japan. There were a total number of 40 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats and the final held on Monday August 26, 1991.
