Summary

The favorites were Renate Stecher (GDR), who had won the 1971 European Championships, and Raelene Boyle (AUS), who had won the 1970 Commonwealth Games title. Stecher was also a world record holder, having equaled the mark of 11.0 three times since 1970. In the final, Stecher led from the start, pulling away to win by over a metre from Boyle, and broke the auto-timed world record with 11.07. In third, Silvia Chivás won the first individual Olympic medal ever by a Cuban woman.
