Summary

Mike Conley had been favored in 1984 but was upset by Al Joyner, winning a silver medal. In 1988 he did not make the American Olympic team. He was again favored in 1992 but Leonid Voloshin, the 1990 European Champion and 1991 World runner-up, was a big challenger. Voloshin opened with 17.32 (56-10) in round one to lead the final. Conley then settled matters in round two with 17.63 (57-10¼) which was good enough for the gold medal. But he solidified his title in the final round, jumping 18.17 (59-7½), which would have been a world record but for an aiding wind of +2.1 m/s, narrowly over the limit. Frank Rutherford of the Bahamas took second place in round two with 17.36 (56-11½) and duplicated that in round three. But he was pushed back to the bronze medal in the final round when American Charlie Simpkins jumped 17.60. Voloshin finished out of the medal in fourth.
