Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
For the first time since 1976 there was only one round before the final, with Baumann the fastest heat winner in 13:20.82. Baumann was considered the man with the best finish, and the Kenyans set out to deprive him of his strength in the final. After 400m in 64.1, Dominic Kirui (KEN) put in laps of 61.2, 62.6 (2:36.4 at 1000m) and 63.2 but slowed up to 65.4, realising that the majority of the field was still with him. By 3000m there were six men 25m clear – Ondieki, a surging type without a big finish, four other Africans and Baumann. Laps of only 65.7, 66.2, 65.7 and 65.2 served to lose only Bikila, and at the bell Bitok and Bayissa led with Baumann third. In the back straight the German was boxed in with Ondieki ahead of him and Boutayeb outside. Bitok, Bayissa and Boutayeb accelerated sharply with just under 200m to go and Baumann shot past Ondieki. In fourth place with 80m to go, Baumann moved past Bayissa on the inside as the Ethiopian strayed into lane 2 and then the German weaved to the outside and sped by Bitok to win. He ran the last lap of 56.1, and, more impressively, the final 200m in 24.9. It was the closest 5000m final since 1968.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
By 1992 the distance running events were the province of the Africans, especially the Kenyan runners. In the final Dominic Kirui (KEN) set the early pace but slowed after the kilometer mark when he realized that much of the field was in contact. By 3K the lead group was six, five Africans and Dieter Baumann (FRG). The pace was still slow and that was tailor-made for Baumann’s finishing speed. On the backstretch of the final lap he was boxed in by Paul Bitok, Fita Bayissa, Moulay Brahim Boutayeb, and Yobes Ondieki. He then began his charge passing on the outside until the final stretch when he moved past Bayissa on the inside to win the gold medal.
