Overview by IAAF 1984_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Ottey, the Commonwealth Champion, was the favourite, but the Americans were the quickest qualifiers. Griffith beat Ottey 22.27 to 22.57 after gaining all of her 3m margin in the first half, run in 11.32. Brisco-Hooks won the other semi-final in 22.26, but had more pressure from Jackson (22.32) and Cook (22.38). Griffith was off quickest in the final, and led by a slim margin off the curve, with Ottey-Page a metre behind the leader. Brisco-Hooks used her 400m strength down the straight, and pulled away to win in a US record 21.81, 2m ahead of Griffith, with Ottey-Page just holding off the fast-finishing Cook. Brisco-Hooks became the first athlete to win the 200m and 400m in the same Games.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
With the Eastern Europeans boycotting, the field was weakened, primarily by the absence of world record holder Marita Koch. The favorite was Jamaica’s Merlene Ottey, the 1982 Commonwealth Games champion. The final was led on the curve by Florence Griffith with Ottey second at the straight. But the race was won by Valerie Brisco-Hooks, a 200/400 runner, who used her strength to pull away in the last 50 metres. She had already won gold in the 400 and became the first athlete to win the 200/400 double at the same Olympics.
