Overview by IAAF   1972_olympic_stadium.jpg 
In the heats, the GDR team equalled the USA’s Mexico City electrically- timed mark of 42.88 a metre ahead of the FRG team (42.97) with the USA a further tenth behind. In the final, Kaufer led after the first leg, but fine running by Mickler and Richter sent Rosendahl 2m ahead of the world record holder Stecher. Instead of Stecher zooming past, the crowd was amazed to see Rosendahl hold all but half a metre of the lead throughout the last 100m. The two Germans picked up more than 2m on the Cuban and USA teams. The reward for the FRG team was a share of the second world record to the nearest tenth, though it actually beat the USA/GDR mark by 0.07 of a second.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
At the 1971 European Championships this event had been won by West Germany, with the GDR second, and Poland third. The two German teams were drawn in the same heat in the opening round, and East Germany now prevailed, though narrowly. In the final, Evelyn Kaufer put the GDR ahead on the opening leg, but West Germany pulled slightly ahead as Heide Rosendahl received the baton for the anchor leg. The 1972 long jump gold medalist, Rosendahl held off Renate Stecher, who had won the 100 and 200 gold medals, and brought the gold medal to the FRG by one metre.
