Participants43 from 32 countries

Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell had not lost in this event in four years, but her competition had mostly been at the collegiate level in the United States, and she had not been world ranked in the 200 prior to 2000. She was considered a slight favorite over American Allyson Felix, an 18-year-old who had quickly become the top 200 metre runner in the US. The final held form as Campbell took the lead with a strong curve and was never caught. Felix closed quickly to get the silver medal but was over a metre back at the line. Her 22.18 was a world junior record. The bronze medal went to the 2002 Commonwealth champion, Debbie Ferguson of the Bahamas.
