Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
When Železný failed to qualify for the Tokyo final. it was felt that the Czech soldier was a poor competitor in big meetings. Golds at the Barcelona Olympics and in Stuttgart changed that perspective. and another gold in Gothenburg solidified Železný’s position as one of the all-time greats. The 21 year-old German. Henry. set a short-lived championship record of 87.60 in the qualifying round. Železný improved this to 90.12 in the same group. It was another German. Hecht. who led after the first round in the final with 83.30. Henry went ahead with 85.16 in round 2. At halfway. Železný was only third (83.02). but he took control at the end of the fourth round with 88.92. No-one could top that apart from Železný himself in the final round. In the meantime. Backley improved to third in the fifth round then silver with his own last throw. “The big one in round 4 brought relief and then I was sure I was the winner.” said Železný. It was a miserable final for the Finns: none of their three finalists qualified for three further throws.
 These are the official results of the Men's Javelin Throw event at the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg. Sweden. There were a total number of 37 participating athletes. with the final held on Sunday 13 August 1995. The qualification mark was set at 82.00 metres.
