Overview by IAAF  1988_olympic_stadium.jpg
In defence of her title Losch led the qualifiers with 20.39, but Lisovskaya – undefeated since 1986 – was favourite, and she dominated the event in a Slupianek-like way. Her first throw of 21.69 won the gold medal, and her six throws averaged 21.58, well in advance of the 21.07 and 21.06 thrown by the other medallists, Neimke and Li. Only Slupianek’s 22.41 in Moscow was better in any international championship of the 20th century. Lisovskaya later married double hammer champion Yuriy Sedykh.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The leading qualifier was the defending champion Claudia Losch (FRG), but the favorite was Nataliya Lisovskaya (URS), who had won the 1987 World Championships. The event was over in round one when Lisovskaya threw 21.69 (71-2). She absolutely dominated the competition, as her shortest throw of 21.11 (69-3¼) would have won the gold medal.
