Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
The qualifying round – notable for the elimination of world record holder Yuriy Dumchev – provided a preview of the final with Bugár, Delís and Valent leading the way. In the final it was Bugár, the European Champion, who started the best with two 67m throws. In the second round, Huumonen briefly went into second place before Delís got into his stride. In the fourth round, Bugár produced his third 67m+ of the series. Valent moved into third. The best finish was from Delís. In the fifth round he ignored the noise from the marathon medal ceremony to come dangerously close to the leader with 67.36. He followed this up with 66.48 but had to settle for a silver.
 These are the official results of the Men's Discus Throw event at the 1983 World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. There were a total of 26 participating athletes, with the final held on Sunday August 14, 1983. The qualification mark was set at 63.00 metres.
