Venue(s): Montjuïc Olympic Stadium, Barcelona
Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
Drechsler led the qualifying with 7.08, the only 7m jump in the preliminary round, but Joyner-Kersee was the favourite, having beaten Drechsler in all three of their previous championship meetings. Kravets, 10th four years earlier, produced the first quality jump of the final, 7.12, in the first round. This was followed by JJK with 7.07 two jumps later. Neither would improve, but would only be approached by Drechsler. The German reached 6.99 in the second round, and improved to produce the gold medal jump of 7.14 in the fourth. Both Joyner-Kersee and Kravets both reached 7.00 again, but, as the American graciously put it, “this was Heike’s day.” Nijolė Medvedeva (LTU) was initially fourth with 6.76, but disqualified after failing a doping control test.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The favorites were again Heike Drechsler (GDR) and defending champion Jackie Joyner-Kersee (USA). At the 1991 World Championships, JJK had again defeated Drechsler. But in Barcelona, Drechsler would get her revenge. The early leader was Ukrainian Inesa Kravets with 7.12 (23-4½) in round one. She held this until Drechsler produced the gold medal winner of 7.14 (23-5¼) in round four. Joyner-Kersee opened with 7.07 (23-2½) and was in second until Drechsler's round four jump, but held on for the bronze medal, Kravets getting silver.
