Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
Only one athlete had achieved 66m in 2004, Menéndez, who had thrown this distance six times. She threw 64.91 to lead 11 qualifiers past the required 61m, with Bicet (60.97) taking the final place ahead of Finland’s Mihaela Ingberg (60.80), who achieved the furthest nonqualifying mark ever. Four throwers had managed 62+ in the first round of the final before Menéndez threw. The spear flew out to 71.53, just one centimetre short of her three year-old world record. The competition was effectively ended, though the Cuban did produce another throw (68.60) easily good enough to take the gold medal. Brejchová was holding second place with 64.23 until the last round, when German veteran Nerius (65.82) and Manjani (64.29) went past. Four Caribbean athletes featured in the top seven: three Cubans and Laverne Eve, who had won the Pan American Junior Shot title 20 years earlier!
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Petra Felke (GER) was the defending champion but was not the dominant thrower she had been in 1988. She had finished second at the 1991 World Championships behind Xu Demei (CHN), while the 1990 European Champion was Finland’s Päivi Alafrantti. But the best throwers in 1992 had been Belarussian Nataliya Shikolenko and Norway’s Trine Hattestad, and they led the qualifiers. Shikolenko took the lead in the final with 68.26 (223-11½) in the first round. Round one produced all the medalists as Silke Renk (GER) threw 67.24 (220-7¼) and Karen Forkel, eventual bronze medalist, threw 65.02 (213-4), and nobody would surpass those marks except the leaders. The standings held up through five rounds with Shikolenko leading Renk, who then won the gold medal with 68.34 (224-2½) on her final toss.
