Summary

Franci Petek, now representing newly independent Slovenia, was the reigning world champion on the large hill but the dominant figure of the 1991-92 season was the teenaged sensation from Finland, Toni Nieminen. Nieminen won the annual Four Hills Tournament early in 1992 and arrived at Albertville with the lead in the World Cup standings.

The Finn and fellow teenager Martin Höllwarth filled the first two places at half way with Höllwarth's fellow Austrian Heinz Kuttin a little further back in third. The two Austrians consolidated their positions in the second round of jumps but any hopes they had of taking a 1-2 were not to come to pass. Toni Nieminen flew forever and when he landed it was at a point some 6½ metres further than any other jumper. At sixteen years and eight months Nieminen was nearly two years younger than Dick Button and, as of 2010, remains the youngest male individual champion in Winter Games history.
