Overview by IAAF   1972_olympic_stadium.jpg 
This was predicted to be a struggle between Rosendahl and Pollak in repeat of the 1971 European Championships won by Rosendahl by just 24 points. Tikhomirova was expected to take the bronze medal. Bodner led after the first event with 966 points, the surprise being Peters with a personal best 13.29. In the shot, Peters moved into the lead with 16.20 to duplicate her first event score of 960 points. The Northern Irish woman then took the high jump by clearing 1.78, and proceeded to set personal bests with 1.80 and 1.82 to win over the crowd and end the first day with 2969 points, 97 ahead of Pollak, and 301 clear of Rosendahl, who was in fifth place. At the start of day two, Peters jumped 5.98 but lost 180 points to Rosendahl’s excellent 6.83, further than her winning mark in the individual event. Rosendahl finished off with a superb 200m in 22.96, as Pollak and Peters crossed the line well behind. Rosendahl fell just 10 points short of catching Peters, whose 4801 constituted a new world record. The German effectively held the world record herself for 1.12 seconds.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
At the 1971 European Championships, Heide Rosendahl had narrowly defeated Burglinde Pollak by 24 points, and they were the two favorites in München. In the second event, Mary Peters of Northern Ireland had the longest shot put (16.20) and moved into the lead. She also led the high jump with 1.82 (5-11½) and had a big lead after day one with Pollan second, while Rosendahl was in fifth place. The second day started with the long jump, and Rosendahl, who had won the individual long jump, led with a superb 6.83 (22-5) effort, but she was still over 100 points down to Peters. Rosendahl was also a good sprinter, and he 22.96 allowed her set a “world record” of 4,791 points, but Peters crossed the line 1.12 seconds later and bettered that mark with 4,801 points to win the gold medal.
