Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
The Soviet Union was in the middle of disintegrating during 1992, with only the Baltic countries fully seceded from the USSR by the time of Barcelona. Romas Ubartas had been the top thrower of 1991 but had missed the World Championships, preferring to wait a year to compete for Lithuania rather than represent the USSR again. Ubartas led the qualifiers with 66.08, but had to wait until round 3 of the final before overtaking Schult’s 64.26 by 10cm. Schult regained the lead in the penultimate round with 64.94, only for Ubartas to respond immediately with 65.12. Roberto Moya was the surprise bronze medallist, having thrown 64.12 in the opening round. A bigger surprise was that World Champion Lars Riedel and Ubartas’s experienced countryman Vaclavas Kidykas each failed to qualify.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The 1991 World Champion was Lars Riedel (GER) but he failed to qualify for the final in Barcelona. The top thrower in 1991 had been the 1988 silver medalist Romas Ubartas (LTU) but he refused to compete at the 1991 Worlds for the Soviet Union. Now with the Soviet Union only a figment, he represented Lithuania in Barcelona. Still redoubtable was the defending champion, Jürgen Schult, now representing a combined Germany. He led after round one with 64.26 (210-10), which would stand up thru the fourth round. In round five, Ubartas responded with 65.12 (213-7¾) to win the gold medal.
