Summary

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.
