Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
Huang, the World Champion, was pre-Olympic favourite, but the qualifying round was led by Krivelyova (19.98) from Lisovskaya (19.58). Huang was the first over 20m in the final with her opening throw of 20.25, and was immediately followed by Krivelyova with 20.34. Neimke was in third with 19.61, but was overtaken by Laza in the second round. Huang regained the lead with her third round put of 20.47, which remained the lead until Krivelyova reached 20.89 in round 5. Neimke improved enough in the last round to take bronze with her 19.78, while Krivelyova finished off the competition with the only 21m throw of the day, 21.06. The former champion, Lisovskaya, managed just one fair throw of 18.60 to place ninth.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The favorite was China's Huang Zhihong, who had won the 1991 World Championships and would win again in 1993. Defending champion Nataliya Lisovskaya was back, but after placing second in the qualifying she would finish only ninth. Svetlana Krivelyova (EUN/RUS) took the lead in round one of the final with 20.34 (66-8¾). But Huang moved ahead with 20.47 (67-2) in round three, only to see Krivelyova take back the lead with 20.89 (68-6½) in the fifth round and improve that to 21.06 (69-1¼) in the final round. Krivelyova had been bronze medalist at the 1991 World Championships, and would improve that to a silver in 1993, but she had a very long career, and would finally win the Worlds in 2003.
